This tea is the mellower sibling to the Grand Golden Needle. The flavors are still quite good but a little bit smoother and rounder. The Cocoa nib flavor is more present than the maltiness I find in Dian Hong usually.
The infusion is a classic deep red and the aroma has that sweet, dry and even a little bit floral aroma that takes me right back to the fields and factories where this tea was made!
