This tastes a lot like other examples of high-quality Yunnan Gold teas that I've tried.

Pyramid sachets are very aromatic!

Upon brewing, produces a cup with numerous subtle aromas. I initially get caraway and rye in the aroma, but then vanilla and caramel. Underneath, there are cocoa tones. Flavor is extremely mild; there's almost no up-front bitterness, and little to no sourness, only a slight sweetness and a pleasantly bitter finish, paired with a mild astringency.

Brewing for four minutes, produced a second cup. The second cup was a bit thinner and less complex, but I still enjoyed it. I found I preferred making the first steeping brief. Because I couldn't experiment with leaf size, I tried brewing in a small vessel to see if I'd like how it tastes when brewed stronger, but the character stayed more or less the same.

As pyramid sachets go, the price is competitive with brands like Two Leaves Tea, Mighty Leaf, and the like, but I think the quality is a notch up.

I also recommend looking in to the loose-leaf version of this tea, which Bare Tea sells on their website. It is a bit cheaper per cup, and seems competitively priced for a Yunnan Gold tea of this quality.
