From Tea Runners

The leaves of this unusual black tea are distinctively smaller than traditional teas of this type, reflecting the endless variety and tastes of Chinese tea makers. High-fired and crafted to the local taste profile, this tea has a pleasingly strong aroma and has soft notes that grow to a natural sweetness. The leaves are smaller and they will release their aromas quickly.

We recommend enjoying this lovely tea on its own, without adding milk or sugar.

One of my favorite black teas is Golden Monkey. This is not Golden Monkey but I quite enjoyed it. It is not a superb, knock your socks off tea, but I didn’t get any bitterness or astringency from it. In fact, I found it very smooth.

I made a pot of it, heated the water to 200 F and steeped the tea for about 4 minutes. I used my homemade tea cozy to keep the pot warm, and it worked really well. The tea was still warm 60 minutes later when I poured my 4th cup. Instead of using a large mug I used my new tea cup from Hong Kong. It is truly lovely. The maker is Tenmokus. They have a wide variety of Asian styled cups with no handle, in different shapes, different glazes, and different price ranges. Most hold between 110 and 140 ml. I had always considered that to be far too small to hold enough tea, but I have now discovered that is the right amount. The cup doesn’t get cold before I finish it, and with a pot of tea I can refill my cup frequently. It was a lovely tea experience tonight. If you’d like to see what the cup looks like I put a link to it on my Instagram account. The makers can be found here: www.Tenmokus.com

Drank 2 cups, don’t have much of an opinion. Another good sign.

Its a bit bitter (even I notice it). Its more than a bit astringent. Not massively so, but enough for it to be rather noticeable.

As for flavor. nothing special here. There’s a lot better out there.

this tea so far doesn’t do anything for me, but i’ll keep playing with steep time and temp to see if i can squeeze a flavour out of it. right now it just tastes like hot water.
