In fact I have a 2018 version of this tea, and it’s a rare gem with a unique and unusual flavour profile. Material similar to yabao material, very unusual to see a black tea made of it. Loads of flavour, highly aromatic, flowery, fruity and woody, dominant notes for me are rose petals, chestnut honey, poplar leaves and cedarwood. Moderate astringency but not without some bitterness. Somewhat reminiscent to oriental beauty oolong. Would recommend shorter initial steeps than usual. Probably not to everyone’s liking but I just love it.
