Sweet pine smoked Tian Jian, its pretty fragrant in that regard (I was surprised when I had the first taste, the sweet smoke was pretty forward).
Quite smooth, easy drinking, sweet. I only had one large sample of this, been 90c with my thermos this evening while painting and listening to music on youtubes.
I have lost count the steep number buy now but its still got a pine thing going on, but lighter & thinner. There has been a slight cinnamon spice going through the session, but I didnt get that strong of a cherry note as mentioned on the website. Its been a nice companion throughout the late windy & rainy night though.
Thanks T-Curious for this lovely pack of hei cha! :)

This is something special. I love a deep, full bodied malty Yunnan. This is not that.
Take the malty earthiness of a typical Yunnan black, mellow it, and layer over it a delecate flowery essence, like a Tieguanyin. This is that tea. It will linger and play across your palate all day. An unexpected treat.
I take the kettle off as it reaches boiling and let it sit for a moment. Not sure if it makes a difference, but it seems appropriate for a tea with such delicate flavors. Steeps between 3 and 4 minutes seems to come out about the same. I didn’t fare as well with a second steep at 5 minutes. It was worth drinking, but not nearly as good as the first steep.
