Taster’s Review:

I love it when I come across a tea that is exactly what it is supposed to be.  Like this.  It is a straight-forward Yunnan.  No extra flavorings or fancy petals or anything else.  It is exactly what it is supposed to be:  a Yunnan.

And it has the flavors I expect from a Yunnan:  bold, spicy, with a black currant, wine-like finish.  It is delicious and flavorful.  The first thing I notice is the peppery flavor – it is a strong, foreground note with nothing to hide.  It’s out there.  There is a lovely sweetness to it too … reminding me a bit of a cinnamon-y syrup.  Sweet, yet spicy.

When I really focus on what I’m tasting, I notice an array of flavors:  woodsy, earthy, leather-y.  Fruit-like tones that taste of tangy currants.  The finish is lightly astringent.  The aftertaste is dry and sweet with a twinge of pepper.

A truly enjoyable cup of Yunnan that is not only delicious but very affordable!
