I got this in a reddit swap – can’t remember who I swapped with really…oops! An interesting black tea, different from any others I’ve had. In my mind, I described it as if a black tea and a baozhong had a baby. The dry leaf didn’t have much of a smell, while the wet leaf smelled like steamed vegetables.
Throughout most of the session, the tea had a beany taste with a slight malty finish. For steeps 2-4 or so, there was a bit of cocoa in the finish as well. Also got a bit of milky creaminess in those steeps. Not much change through 9 steeps otherwise. An interesting and different black tea for sure.
Flavors: Beany, Cocoa, Creamy, Malt
