This is a tea with a few reviews scattered throughout Steepster among the separate entries for each harvest so there is no critical mass in one place. So I created a harvest-neutral entry that, hopefully, will over time acquire enough reviews to provide useful guidance to those contemplating ordering it.
It is a gentle and delicate black tea. The aromas are vaguely floral and the taste is malty, a bit astringent and sweet: grapes, sugarcane, lime, rose petals. It is quite a unique taste and more delicate than many other purple teas I have tried. I mostly drink it Western but it also steeps well gongfu: when prepared that way it comes out somewhat along the lines of light, floral Taiwan oolongs.
Flavors: Grapes, Lime, Malt, Rose, Sugarcane
