The brew was a bit too astringent for my taste. One sugar cube in a teacup was too sweet, but it needs some sweetness to balance. Used finum bag with a ceramic teapot, and drank with half n half. Next time will try less steep time.

Not loving this. It’s pretty smokey, though not as bad as the Mincing Lane Breakfast Blend I tried and gave away last week. I bought an absolutely (to me) enormous bag of it because there wasn’t a sample size — 4.4 oz. Will probably offer to send it to someone on the Discussions board, unless someone reading my tasting notes would like it :)

Flavors: Smoke

Yunnan teas are nice teas! Very earthy, rich, and smokey (in the woodsy sense of the word; not the campfire taste that a Lapsang has).They have a tendency to have a pu-erh kind of taste. If you’re looking for a good black tea without the smokey taste, try something like an Earl Grey (or anything flavored). However, I know a majority of my friends who like tea, but not black tea (although they want to like it) go with something with flavor, or an oolong.

For my third cupping of this tea, I reduced the temperature as well as the steep time. This brought out a pleasant smokiness in the flavor, but seemed to leave the overall flavor underdeveloped. Having run through my entire sample of the tea, at this point, I still feel that there is potential in this tea that I have not fully explored, so I will probably purchase another sample in order to continue attempting to bring out its full characteristics.
