This tea is rich and bold with slightly sweet fruity smell and taste. I would say the most prominent taste comparison would be cinnamon or allspice. It reminds me a little of Italian super Tuscans.

I have tried many of the Adagio black teas and this and the black pearls are my two favorite.

The aroma of the dry tea is rich and quite sweet, with notes of cocoa, roasted peanuts, yams, honey, and a delicate finish of dried cherry. It is nothing short of mouthwatering, but I do have a great love for this kind of tea.

The first steeping is light, a creamy blend of sweet cocoa, roasted peanuts and a rich aftertaste of molasses. The mouthfeel is smooth, almost creamy, it fills up the mouth with sweetness. It is pretty on par with other golden Bi Luo Chun teas I have had (though that number is fairly small, I really need to get more!) though a tiny bit sweeter.

This is a very nice tea, smooth and sweet, but with some depth to it. It is very characteristic of the Yunnans of the past few years, as it is not as deep, not as spicy nor as chocolatey as it used to was. I found you can do a second infusion if you use half the water for about 5 minutes.

Let me start by saying, I am not a coffee drinker. For me, the tea I choose to drink throughout the day will be dependent on my mood. This tea would be one that I would use to start my day, as I think it has the ability to give you that initial morning burst that many people claim to get from that first pot of java....
