TEA> Black Tea> China> Yunnan (for more)
Leaf: alright, not many gold tips but its got a little gold ‘dust’ in the package…
Method: boiled filtered water/200F stream hitting the cup.
Taste: yunnan black but sort of …”generic”?, not really wine, not really caramel, some very distant smoky? More flavor that the other yunnan black from Puerhshop & much less astringency 1/3 compared to 2/3 or more in the other one. Not really tea bag flavor…Interesting part seems to leave a sweet aftertaste feel. Interesting part #2, on 2nd infusion seems to get a greenish sensation as i remember from this keemun maofeng tasting… not “black-ened” enough?
Overall: its ok. not enough flavor. not sure i’d get again.
