I got this this in a swap with tperez a while ago, but I only got around writing about it now as I finish the bag. I found less sweet, malty, and cocoa notes in here than your standard Yunnan dian hong. Instead, the aroma is more herbaceous and the taste more citrusy and bitter. There are notes of baked bread, thyme, and grains among others. The body is medium at best, but liquor has a nice bubbly mouthfeel that I like. All in all, it’s probably not as unique as I make it sound though, the profile does bear a lot of resemblance to other black teas of course.
