This tea is almost all golden buds (Special Grade) and is supposed to be a step above the Aprtea’s Jin Jun Mei First Grade that I liked quite a bit but I was not swept off my feet by any means. And looks and smells great but tastes to subtle if you steep it Western for a minute or two. Almost like a white tea. I had to increase the steeping time to 34 minutes and the flavors emerged but the long steep brought forward strong currents of malt, dark chocolate and sweet potato and they kind a drowned that special Jin Jun Mei subtle sweetness.
It was still a good, enjoyable tea that resteeps quite well but it came off a bit unbalanced and not particularly special.
Flavors: Berries, Dark Chocolate, Honey, Malt, Sweet Potatoes
