Taster’s Review:

What a beautiful tea.  The dry leaf is gorgeous!  It does not possess a strong aroma, but the color is lovely.  Once brewed, the liquor has a lightly spiced fragrance with hints of cocoa and leather.

This is deliciously full-flavored.  It has a sweet note to it that is somewhere between honey and burnt sugar.  It is malty with chocolate-y notes in the background.  There is a pleasant set of spice notes to this that meld beautifully with the dark cocoa flavor.  It isn’t as spicy as some Yunnan teas that I’ve encountered – this has a stronger sweet presence with hints of the spice.

It is a very smooth tea with a light astringency.  There is no bitterness to the cup.  It’s just perfectly delicious.  An absolutely fabulous cup of tea!

I love it!
