I drank this tea the other night and rather unexpectedly the poet/romantic in me went nuts over it . . . It smells so sweet and enticing, like plums and night. There is something mysterious and sensual about this tea. Dark and wild, with a lingering fruit aftertaste. Slight bitterness at beginning of sip goes away instantly and goes away completely after a couple of infusions. The leaves are black in color when dry, then turn red and brown with some green when steeped. I would call this tea heady. Maybe this is the mysterious cha qi I hear whisperings of . . . anyhow, if you cannot already tell I enjoyed this tea very much.

I am a relatively new tea drinker, although my time as a barista and also my time as a wino gave me some critical sipping experience . . . I find this to be a wonderful way of exploring a whole new world of tastes and senses!
