From Teahouse Kuan Yin

A fruity black tea from the high mountain region of Taiwan. A fine oolong grower’s take on black tea, feel free to brew this similar to how you would prepare an oolong. If you like Assam #8, try this tea for a richer, deeper body and flavor, and a tea that can be steeped up to 4 or 5 times. Truly a special treat for either an oolong or a black tea lover!

Tea #2 from my June 2018 Sips by Tea Box. Had to add this one to the database too, which is why it has no picture.

First steep is very robust. I steeped it much longer than I probably should have (got involved in something else and forgot about it for a few minutes). It’s a bit roasty and has a very deep flavour. No astringency or bitterness that I can pick up at all. Extremely smooth. Lingering malty-ish aftertaste. There’s something there I can’t quite identify but it’s nice.

Going to steep this for the rest of the work day. The recommendation is 4-5 times so I think these leaves have a lot of life left in them. The packaging leaves something to be desired though, with no way to re-seal after opening.
