I’ve had this tea for awhile but never left a review on it. Had it only in sample size .
Finished off the last of it yesterday but don’t think I will buy this tea. It’s good but not the best Fujian black I’ve had. It seems it was lacking in freshness. Perhaps because of how it was packaged (in little clear plastic baggies). Of course it was only sample size and the whole idea of samples is to try them right away and not let them sit around forever!
So brewed it up Western style. Used the water from the work water cooler which is probably anywhere from 195F – 205F. Could even be less than 195F but it seems pretty hot. I got chocolate notes and some malt. I love the chocolate & malt but this just wasn’t up to par. I’ve had much better blacks.
A pleasant enough cup but nothing to get excited about.
