Out of all the teas that AllanK has provided for me to try, I believe this is only the 2nd one that I have not liked; that’s pretty awesome since the number is somewhere around 20.
I believe it is the material used in this tea that I don’t like. For others I am sure it is great, but the taste is a little weaker than the ripe teas that I like and it doesn’t have the same earthy tones to it or the deepness from the first brew. There is some dryness to the tea, but that can be easily overlooked if the taste profile fits with what one likes, this one just isn’t for me. I will say that it does resteep quite consistently though which is a plus.
Never had anything from Tea Trekker before… but someone is buying http://www.teatrekker.com/tung-ting-aged-27-years :)
