Bought a 25g sample of this with my last order to Yunnan Sourcing US. IT is described as having a licorice flavor. That is one interpretation but I feel it has more of a grape note to me, like a muscatel darjeeling tea. In any case its quite good, if expensive. It was $12 for the 25g sample although they were running a sale at the time. I only brewed this western style and it deserves gongfu but I’m on my way to work so no time.
I steeped this one time in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and 190 degree water for 3 min.
