So, starting with the typical stuff, it’s a Yunnan black. It’s malty, chocolatey, and sweet potatoey.

Comparing it to the other Chinese blacks I’ve had lately, it’s a little brighter in flavor. As soon as I take a sip, there’s a sharp tang of tannins that hits at the front of the tongue. Potato notes hit next in the middle of the tongue, and then the mouth is filled with a dark chocolate flavor at the end. There’s some astringency at the back of the palate.

Though this tea is excellent, I think I prefer some of the other Yunnans I’ve been drinking lately.

This tea is somewhat malty and somewhat chocolaty. It is quite good. Not sure how else to describe it. I added sugar but I think it would be goo straight too.

I brewed this one time in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and 200 degree water for 3 min.

Flavors: Chocolate, Malt
