Individual leaves charcoal black, lightly rolled and wiry.
Tea is dominated by high-toned aromatics: cocoa, camphor, candied fruit and pine resin…almost “cooling”. Light malt and roasted barley at the lower end.

Palate flavours follow the aromas: roasted grains, cocoa and this candy minty coolness. Mild bitter dark chocolate astringency. Medium body with a long finish

Interesting tea that speaks of its origins.

Might be interesting to try blending this with a creamier black fom Yunnan for example.

I like tea; I’d like to drink more of it. I also like wine; I probably drink too much of that.
