From Floating Leaves Tea

The 2017 season’s Oriental Beauty is darker and more full bodied than the 2016 season. Notes of dark honey and cinnamon. This tea is more suited to brew ‘grandpa style’, rich and full.
This was harvested in late June in Pinglin, grown with the Qingxin Varietal.

It has a nice fragrance and taste. It has a bitter chocolaty taste but it was also a little sweet. It’s tea I wouldn’t mind having often. I think it’s a good tea for people who don’t usually drink tea to try, because of the chocolate flavor. It might appeal more to coffee drinkers than green tea would.

I drank this along with the 2016 Oriental Beauty.

This Oriental Beauty is dark. It is woodsy and has an interesting cinnamon note. Later steepings get dark honey like and could be confused for a black tea. The colour of this tea is dark too. Very good grandpa style, but is great gongfu style too.
