Decent enough black! I got this tea from my recent YS order, and it’s not too bad but not amazing either. Nice, relatively whole leaves but a low proportion of buds, rich aroma in the wet leaf with nuance and complexity, and vibrant red liquor in the cup. The flavour is pretty well-rounded, reminding me of tangerines or 小青柑 Puer, and the texture is smooth with a slight juiciness to it. Character is decent, a bit of steep variability paired with a average to decent finish & aftertaste. Cha-qi is almost non-existent and steep longevity is average, topping out at steep 7-8.
