Really enjoying this one all day. Lots of sour plummy taste & aroma – I actually didnt like it oversteeped, in fact ive been flashing it all day with lower temps and its just going and going. It can explode with a funky sour taste if left to its own devices imho.

Really interesting tea, a bit like aged sheng but a differentdeep sour, some bark flavour & age or storage but nothing that puts me off. pickled plum/umeboshi tea? :)

I did write a big review all day but closed the tab so its been shortened.

Glad im getting to try these Hei Cha, as I have enjoyed the two ive had so far, & want to try some more (of the nice ones).

A bit one sided in its taste perhaps, and not as complex as I really like but the aroma is a nice one & the huigan was nice in the early steeps. Now im on something like steep 10 & its softened but still pleasant.

I would buy some of this, A good alternative to having aged sheng imo, and a 250g brick would last me forever. (& only $30) I dont know where this one falls for people who know Hei Cha – is it a good one or not? Who knows but its fruity & different :)

Flavors: Bark, Pleasantly Sour, Plums, Sour

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.
