Mmm. Smells bready and chewy and I just wanna gnaw on it a little bit. Even though this is a Chinese tea, it smells like a super-tasty Assam. Then, once it is fully brewed, a bold and rich Tiger-like Yunnan. And the taste? It somehow manages to be both! Chewy and nom-worth Assam on the front, smooth and sweet Yunnan on the back – it’s like the mullet of teas! If this had a little smoke and cocoa thrown into the mix, it’s be the slightly less developed twinsie of the fantastic Tan Yang Te Ji from TeaSpring. This one falls short of that high standard but it’s still a pretty darn good tea. Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for this tasty number!
Okay, must add that as it cools, it’s getting insanely thick feeling with a strong fig-like note of sweetness. It almost makes me think I’m sipping on syrup. In a good but crazy-rich way.
