drank Wuyuan Black by Little Red Cup Tea Co.
1719 tasting notes

This is a good solid everyday workhorse tea. It isn’t going to blow you away but it does the job. It appears to be very forgiving as to leafing and steep time. Perfect for early morning when you can’t be trusted with measuring or telling time. For those who like to be jolted awake, this might not be your tea. I prefer a more subtle wake up. There is no bitterness. I didn’t notice any dryness. What I got was cup that tastes dark, sweet, and leafy. I noticed some mild notes of smoke underneath (very mild). It should take milk or sugar well – though I tried neither. It should also work nicely iced. Your friends who don’t get your tea obsession would recognize this as tea.

Recommend as an everyday black

This sounds like it would be a perfect replacement for RiverTea’s Golden Yunnan. Was the taste similar to that? I know I keep harping on that particular tea, but it was perfect.

Nope. I wish. This is closer to Prince of Wales. That gentle but a better taste. The smoke is not obvious at all.
