|"Rich and bold with pepper and chocolate flavours all encompassed in strong malty overtones."|
Let's just jump in balls-deep (HA!) and get to the nitty-gritty of this tea. I steeped two balls in about 5 ounces of water for three minutes with just under boiling water, and I was left with an adorable little cup of deliciousness. I actually strained my tea, but I've read elsewhere that you can feel free to leave the leaves and sip after they settle.
Taste-wise, this is exactly what you would expect from a high-quality Yunnan: Rich and bold with pepper and chocolate flavours all encompassed in strong malty overtones. This is the kind of tea I could enjoy immediately after waking up or as the evening is winding down. It's the kind of tea I immediately want to share with friends, and now that I think of it, my sharing high-quality deliciousness may be the only reason I have friends. Hmm... I'm all right with that.
