Slight floral aroma mixed with the smell of charcoal. It had a bit of bitterness with a strong charcoal roast flavor. The aftertaste is reminiscent of chocolate.

Da Hong Pao smelled sweeter than it tasted. When I had it, it was very bitter, and it’s one of those teas where if you like it you’ll like it or if you don’t you don’t. I did end up trying multiple cups of it because each cup tasted different each time. Towards the end when I had my 4th cup it started tasting sweet, but not enough to make me want to drink it again.

I didn’t think I’d like this, because it smelled so strongly of charcoal, but I did enjoy it. I tried the 2nd/3rd brew.
