as you see upclose the leaf has little hairs on them. while brewing the leaf swells up (i think i underestimated how much i put in the pot.)

Flavor: like regular yunnan, but better, smoother, very pleasant. detect some mild smoky scent, also some smoky flavor (very mild).

goes good with sugar. (not much nasty sugar aftertaste).
tastes good cold as well.

Overall: tea-keep-o-meter: OH YES.!
