Ok, another from my YS monthly sub.

really thin perfect needles, not a single one unbroken, and really heavy on the scales! i always pick out a lot more than i think is right.

flavour wise, its like varnished wood, malty, strong, almost ‘brassy’ (?) if thats a thing. like a slight astringency going on, but that is balanced by the heavy strong malty note. A bit of tobacco & wine notes in there too. Classic Yunnan red/black, but a bit lively with it. Not as heavy as others ive had. but not sweet either.

Ive only been drinking it grandpa style as im out of town at the moment, but its been doing that nicely.

Flavors: Astringent, Malt, Red Wine, Tobacco, Wood

205 °F / 96 °C 8 min or more 2 g 10 OZ / 295 ML

Basically loads of Fenghuang, jade oolong & sheng puerh.

90+ is godly

80-90 is something i would buy again.

60-80 ok, but probably more bland or basic in their flavour.

0-60 something tastes wrong with this one.
