One of the nicest Yunnan black teas I have had a chance to try. The smell has the usual notes of malt and chocolate, but also some apple and yeast.

It’s a full bodied and smooth tea. Not too much of bitterness or astringency to be found, but it’s also not super sweet like some other Yunnan blacks. I don’t find it very complex, but it is really yummy and easy to drink. It pairs well with lighter cheeses like some goat cheeses.

Flavors: Apple, Dark Chocolate, Earth, Malt, Sweet Potatoes, Yeast

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 1 min, 0 sec 5 g 4 OZ / 120 ML

I have been a fan of green tea for a while and I started exploring other kinds of tea in greater depth only in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
