Tastes like a moderate quality Yunnan black tea, it is very good, but not as good as the loose Yunnan blacks I have had. Sweet and smooth with chocolate overtones, gets easily astringent with higher temperatures.

Very good tea, but I would 100% order loose leaf Yunnan black tea over this, the highly compressed cake is a real pain to break apart and I end up turning a lot of it into tea dust.

Flavors: Astringent, Chocolate, Cocoa

I am a trained Cicerone (Beer sommelier) attempting to transfer my palette and skills to the tea world.

I have been enjoying tea for well over a decade, and more recently have come across my true passion for tea. I love learning about the culture, history, production, cultivation, and most importantly enjoyment of the beverage itself.

My favorite tea is black followed by sheng then oolong so far.

So far my favorite terroir is Jingmai with Yiwu a close second.
