It may be because this tea is more choppy than the huangpian in Basics, but I notice more sweetness, and more bitterness right off the bat. I also get a very nice lasting floral/fruity/sweetness that continues for a good half hour after each cup. I did not know huigan like this was possible in huangpian.
It has a pungent factory like tongue puckering punch (in a good way) also probably from the consistency of the leaves. As I continue drinking this I’m just blown away by how sweet it is. Once again so pleasantly surprised that a tea at this price level, and caffeine level, could be this good. I’m an insomniac so this is a godsend
