I drank my first cup of this so fast that I didn’t really stop to take notes. I’m about to do a second cup so I will try to pay more attention. I can say that the tea liquid was dark but not too bold or too sweet. I caught the scent of tobacco from the leaves after steeping. It doesn’t seem as well-rounded as other black teas I’ve had, but it was obviously good since I drank it so quickly. I’ve been drinking a lot of herbals lately so it’s nice to be able to come back to something with some body to it.

Second Steep
8 ounces water + 195 degrees + 7 minutes

The color of the liquid is red and looks just as the first cup did. It isn’t deep-colored but more bright. The taste hasn’t weakened at all with the second cup. The caffeine content certainly hasn’t decreased either. Wow.

Flavors: Tobacco

I find that my Yunnan red tea has a tobacco scent when dry and a sweet-tobacco undertone in taste. The color is a bright red. Do you usually get two steeps from this tea, and have you achieved more?
Have you had a non-flavored tea from Sri Lanka?

This is my first time to try this particular tea. The second cup was quite flavorful so I’m sure I could have gotten more steeps out of it, but time got away from me and I never got around to making a third cup.

I drink mostly flavored teas so I’m not sure that I’ve tried anything from Sri Lanka aside from this. At least, if I trust the description, I think that’s where this tea is from. I’m not familiar enough with tea yet to be able to distinguish between the different varieties or tea growing regions, but I’ve been wanting to buy several types of black teas so that I can start learning the differences between them. Are there any varieties you would recommend for someone starting out with non-flavored black teas?

Red teas from Yunnan are sweet and more delicate than other red teas. I would recommend one of those, if you’re looking for un-flavored tea that holds it’s own, besides pu-erh. The leaves range from black and brown, to brown and yellow and gold. They are made of buds and leaves.

Thank you! I will definitely check into the Yunnan teas.
