Review of Zhu Rong Yunnan Black

9 of 105 of 55 of 593 of 100

Method: 1.5 tsp, 8 oz, 205 degrees, 45 seconds, Forlife brew in mug strainer & Dr. Who mug

Dry Leaf Aroma: O. M. G. This is positively sublime. See how it made me use a word like "sublime"? It smells like roasty chocolate, malt, and roses. That's right. Roses.

Brewing Aroma: Very malty, but with a hint of something interesting that I can't quite place.

Flavor: This is exceptionally lovely. It's smooth, with just a hint of astringency on the end. It tastes like slowly roasted, light malts with a little floral note. It's not sweet, but it certainly doesn't need any sugar. I think it's an amazing tea. I received a sample from a tea friend, and I am on my way to buy more NOW.
