Wow! I have re-awakened my taste for Chinese blacks. Might have to get this again real soon!

Visited Dobra on a recent vacation to Asheville. Oh how I wish my area could support a nice tea house! Looking at their menu I planned to try their Gui Fei oolong, but they were out. The worker there recommended me a Thai Honey Oolong which was quite similar to Gui Fei and it was very good. In retrospect I probably should have bought some to go, but I decided to go with my staple Yunnan black since I hadn’t brought any with me to the mountains.

The Jin Zhen/Golden Buds is a fairly nice, very smooth black tea. It hints at fruity cherry and soft milk chocolate notes, slightly tart, as well as the standard malt and sweet potato. It’s good, but the flavors are not as full/defined as I’ve been accustomed to with hongcha from Yunnan Sourcing or Teavivre.

The flavor was wonderful and slightly chocolatey. The leaves are big so you have to add a bit more due to the size versus the teasoon’ limited capacity. Honestly I would weigh this tea over a volumetric measurement if I could. I got three brews from this tea.!
