Fantastic offering! Brewed in 200 ml yixing at ~195F, gets about 8 good steeps. It’s a bug-bitten tea, and the honey notes are immediate and up front in the aroma and the taste. I’ve had dongfang meiren (“Oriental beauty”), another bug-bitten tea, but I think it’s even better here as a black/red tea. Good sweet/tannin balance, long lasting finish, fairly thick mouthfeel. Up there with the best un-aged teas I’ve had.

Flavors: Butterscotch, Chocolate, Honey, Malt, Roasted Barley, Tannin

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 0 min, 45 sec 8 g 7 OZ / 200 ML

I particularly like lightly oxidized Taiwanese oolongs. I like most teas, but those are generally my fav. Other than that I’m a well-rounded cool dude doing hella stuff fairly well.
