After having a few other teas, this one ranks high. 20 seconds, Gong Fu, and this is delicious. Like chocolate covered plums…if that makes sense. Either way, it is frickin’ good.


This is making want to buy from What-cha even more. Must hold out…it does sound delicious.


Haha we arent going to help much with that im afraid; when you do, make sure to get some of the zhangping as well

What-cha is a great company period. Alistair has an amazing selection and I’ve gotten something out of every tea offered. I’ve been eye balling the Discover Darjeeling sampler pack…maybe next Christmas.
Again, I have LiquidProust to thank for my introduction to it.


Must resist…
