Wow, this is a really dark-looking, dense tea – almost like pu-erh in some respects. It tastes quick ‘thick’ if that makes any sense. It has quite a strong flavour that verges of being bitter, but I can distinctly taste the slightly smokey, tannic (leathery? malty?) flavour that all Yunnan teas seen to have. It’s quite smooth- tasting initially, but it’s at the end and a bit in the aftertaste where the bitterness comes in. It doesn’t have those sweet, cocoa notes that some Yunnans have, but it’s likeable despite its rough edges.

I can already tell that this is a good, morning kick in the arse tea. Lord knows I’m going to need it today.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
