Sun Moon Lake Blacks seem to be pretty good ones for sure. Another randomly selected sample. I really like how the leaf looks with these kinds of teas. The leaves smelled nice and raisiny/malty. There were a lot of flavors going on – a bit of cocoa, malt, and some spiciness. I did get some raisin notes but they were more of a delayed/lingering aftertaste. A pretty good one! Too bad Idestea doesn’t exist anymore :P

This seems really nice. the first steep has roasty dark chocolate notes, really earthy and astringent. It’s quite similar to a Laoshan black at first, but I think a bit darker and definitely more astringent. There’s a subtle fruitiness in the back, sort of like peaches and cherries. The dark cocoa notes lift out as the steeps go on, paving the way to sweet darkness that doesnt seem to have any specific prevalent flavour. Maybe a bit of coffee? It’s strange, it’s really tasty but I dont know what it tastes like. I think it’s a strange balance between spices, florals, a sort of soapy taste, and the original cocoa and coffee notes, and sort of brown sugar? (I’ve been getting a lot of coffee notes lately, and I think it’s not a good thing. it seems to be abbrasive and intrusive, and only happens with oversteepings) I definitely was writing all of that and i have a sort of cracked pepper aftertaste in my mouth from seemingly nowhere. Also I’m more clearly noticing peach and mango notes. It’s a strange tea. But like strange in an almost bland sense. But bland in a delicious sense. No, I don’t understand what I’m talking about okay. That’s just what my senses are telling me. I think basically the cocoa gave away to spices and pleasant bitterness.
