I have already review this one under the yunnan sourcing ( not us ) category. I found it a nice tea, nice to sip when I don’t have to think much about the tea I am drinking.

I’ve developed a sweet tooth for many of the YS wild arbor black teas (which often hail from the same villages and mountains as their raw pu-erhs), so I thought I would check out a different kind of black tea. I was rewarded with a really nice cup, albeit one that is a little tough to characterize. In one sense it reminds me of a red robe oolong, a tea that I’m not particularly fond of, but wedded to a creamy, cannabis-scented maltiness and you get a delicious and forgiving tea that can handle a longish steep and extra leaf. It’s very nice to drink in the evening on the cusp of autumn, when the perfume and dried fruit seem to presage the coming season.

This tea has just become one of my favorite black teas! Very aromatic, very potent. And a really good value from Yunnan Sourcing at only 6$ / 50g. At the time I got it it was still fresh that there’s a green tint to the leafs once brewed. It has this kind of unique, complex, sweet taste, that stays with you long after the cup is done.

Flavors: Caramel

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 1 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 7 OZ / 200 ML

Hmm, this sounds like something I would like but somehow I am not loving this particular tea. It is flavorful but also on the tobacco/bitter side of things, at least when you steep it for 2 minutes. So maybe the answer is to gong fu it. I hope I find some way to enjoy it as I now have 50g. Not leaving a rating for now…
