I bought this because it was cheap. So so super cheap. The good stuff (high-quality yancha) is known for being quite expensive, so I figured if this tea was decent it would be a good daily drinker to take to school.

I got 4.5 oz for $8. It’s pretty astringent. Medium roasted, so at least it wasn’t over-roasted to cover up any weird flavors. I don’t get any rock taste. It’s pretty one note, not very floral or chocolaty.

Overall this tea’s meh. I got what I payed for and it made me really appreciate the more expensive stuff I buy. However, this will be fine for sipping in French class.

I’m passionate about tea, good books, classical music, and botany. I brew my tea gongfu style. I drink a lot of puerh and oolong (usually darker ones, but I’m by no means opposed to a good li shan). If I had to pick a favorite catigory of tea, it’d probably be wuyi yancha. I’m always on the hunt for new teas and teaware, so send me your suggestions!
