This tea is very aromatic, flavorful, and unique! It tastes very malty and roasty almost as if there was toasted grains in the tea, even though it is just a pure black tea. The taste is very complex and interesting and the tea is not astringent or bitter at all! This definitely gets a 100% in my book.

Wow, I've been reviewing teas for all these years and this is the first tea I've ever tried from Shandong, and I am a fan!

The leaf is tightly curled and has a dusty gray appearance, with small but somewhat thick leaves, and smells very potent: strongly malty with a hint of smoke and dark chocolate. The maltiness is...

I love when I find a tea that is unique and different, and this one certainly fits that description. My first impression is that of burnt sugar/caramel. The liquor is a beautiful light golden brown color. The aroma is like a huge wave of burnt caramel and chocolate hitting all of your senses. The taste is a more balanc...

Jan. 14th, 2015

Throughout numerous steepings, this tea’s flavors shifted in a harmony of dark, earthy sweetness, and baked notes, cereal, and sweet potato. On the first steeping (10s), it had a robust richness: dark chocolate, cooked ripe fruits, malt syrup. The liquor had the kind of silky mouth-feel I have only experienced with c...

I am obviously falling in love with malty, chocolatey black teas. I can definitely see why this one is so popular! The dried leaves are small and curly, and smell like chocolate and bread. The chocolate aroma intensifies once the water hits it. Usually I set a timer and walk away to do something else while my tea i...

Method: 1.5 tsp in 8 oz at 205 degrees for 4 min, French Press

My boyfriend made this as our breakfast tea while I was getting ready for work. There are no instructions on the bag, but I think he did pretty well, considering.

I'm basing my review on his method, but I will try this again using the instructions...

Aug. 11th, 2013

An unusual artisan tea, smooth, creamy and flavorful. The aroma is out of this world, and you will be amazed that all the flavor comes only from the tea itself, and the careful way it was manipulated during the oxidizing and drying process. Best brewed Chinese Gong Fu style, and yet still amazing when just brewed in a ...
