Nice. Interestingly, it has that warming, toasty aroma that also characterises Wuyi oolongs. I always attributed this to the roast of Wuyi oolongs, but since it is also present in this black tea I guess it also comes from terroir. Also this tea is nicely mineral, but still it is clearly a black tea. No astringency or bitterness present at all. I find it also a bit tame though. I like teas that have a little bite and lingering aftertaste. The aromatics of this one are gone the moment you swallow. I guess you could call that a `clean finish’, but to me it feels a little unsatisfying. When brewed with an extra large amount of leaf (sheng puerh style) I like it a bit more.
