March 2023 Picking.

The dry leaf is quite beautiful. A small amount of golden buds scattered throughout make for a beautiful mixture of colors amidst the majority of the dark chocolate tightly twisted leaves and the less prevalent slightly reddish brown and slightly open leaf. The aroma is quite nice. Actually, it’s more than nice it’s perplexing because it assaults your nose with so many different kinds of aromas when the bag is opened. Plums, deep woods…

It’s creamy, woody, oaty, plumy, longon, a bit of Palo Santo wood, When you taste a good tea it’s like the sparkles that appear on Dance Dance Danseur when a person who really puts their all into their ballet performance.

Wet Leaf: I’d say it’s pretty typical aroma for a Yunnan black but by saying that I am not at all saying it’s bad or even average. It is woody and bready and fruity in all the best ways (with some of them just reminding me of other teas)

It says seven infusions but I am on the 3rd now and honestly, I don’t think going past this will reveal much else. IF steeped long enough it does revel some things but I don’t think seven is the lucky number this time.

I’m a purist but I will try a flavored as long as it doesn’t have artificial flavors.

I will drink any type and love to taste whatever I can get my hands on.

(Purple is not a type of tea it is a cultivar known as TRFK 306/1)
