I got this in a reddit swap – can’t remember who I swapped with really…oops! An interesting black tea, different from any others I’ve had. In my mind, I described it as if a black tea and a baozhong had a baby. The dry leaf didn’t have much of a smell, while the wet leaf smelled like steamed vegetables.

Throughout most of the session, the tea had a beany taste with a slight malty finish. For steeps 2-4 or so, there was a bit of cocoa in the finish as well. Also got a bit of milky creaminess in those steeps. Not much change through 9 steeps otherwise. An interesting and different black tea for sure.

Flavors: Beany, Cocoa, Creamy, Malt

200 °F / 93 °C 0 min, 15 sec 4 g 2 OZ / 60 ML

A bit about myself: 22 years old, college grad (Double major in Anthropology and History). I plan to make a career of archaeology and hopefully travel (much of) the world in my days.

I enjoy many things aside from tea, including gaming, mixing cocktails, reading, watching anime, and painting miniatures.

My favorite type of tea is sheng puerh. Particularly younger stuff, if only because I haven’t gotten the chance to taste much of anything aged. I also really like oolong (Taiwanese, Wuyi, Dancong, etc.) and Japanese Green Teas. I do also enjoy most other kinds of tea, but they aren’t what I normally buy. I’m not a huge fan of shou puerh, black tea, or flavored blends, with few exceptions.

I really like interacting with the tea community, so if you ever want to talk or swap teas or anything, feel free to shoot me a message or something. Follow me and I’ll follow you back. Probably ;)
