Got lots of steeps out of this one compared to India blacks, but not as many as from a Yunnan. Didn’t keep close count though. Pleasing, with predominantly woodsy and malty tones. Light toffee and cacao notes with some astringence. Even oversteeped this did not get bitter.

Flavors: Cacao, Malt, Toffee, Wet Wood

My first tea love was the oolong served at Chinese restaurants when I was growing up in Houston. In 2015 I started exploring tea for real and it has become an obsession.

Favorites: Chinese green tea, most oolongs except dark roasted tieguanyin, and sheng. On a quest to find my favorite black tea.

Also, I am known to bumble into landmines by answering rhetorical questions. :)
