I must confess I bought this tea b/c I absolutely love how it looks. I’m a sucker for the bi luo chun rolled tea but last year I had the green version of this tea and it was way too green for me :) Who would have guessed. So, I brewed this ‘warrior’ style, ~5-6g in 95ml of water with short steeps. Like I would brew a puerh! The resulting liquor is POTENT, BRUTAL and Tasty, it reminds me vaguely of coffee, as it has a weight to it.
Proper review time:
Dry Leaves: Smell of milk chocolate
Wet Leaves: Cacao and Dian Hong smell.
Taste: Oh my, the first infusion have a really clear cacao after-taste, after a couple of infusion that aftertaste become dominant in the taste too. The texture is basically the same as heavy cream or jam :) As state earlier, it’s a tea to be drunk really slowly, I feel it going down into my system very clearely, and like coffee, I feel a ‘returning flavor/weight’.
Anyway, a very good tea. Drink it slowly, BREW IT HARD
WARRIOR STYLE :)
ps: Is there anything I don’t brew hard!! :)
Flavors: Cacao, Malt
