No suspense, I say it right now: I love this black Yunnan tea.
It smells very good : dried fruit and it looks beautiful with its golden tips.
Let’s go for 5 minutes into a boiling water.
The taste is very malty with very present earthy notes, really strong. The nice points with this Dian Hong is its soft, mellow texture and its fruity peach and apricot notes, which downplay the earthy and rocky side.
The fruit soften all the beverage and make this tea almost greedy.
The first steep was a very pleasant one but the second was much lambda without real interest imo and with a lack of body compared to the first one.
I really enjoyed the first steep, this is the main information. I’ll probably buy some of this one.
