Sweet, creamy, vanilla, cherry cola, some mild herbaciousness, some cocoa. Later steeps have a sweet, somewhat floral quality. Brewed this up grandpa style and was hit with a flavor like classic glazed donut. It’s not the most complex shou, but it’s very satisfying. If this tea sat and brooded a little more, getting a little more heady I wouldn’t mind.

Flavors: Cherry, Cocoa, Creamy, Sweet, Vanilla

I enjoy Dian Hong mostly, but have been venturing further into puerh, and anxi and dancong. I tend to focus on daily drinkers and teas that do well grandpa/western as I don’t have the time or caffeine tolerance to gong fu frequently.

90 – 100: Fancy daily, special occasion, teas that I carefully ration.
80 – 89: Ideal daily drinker range, very good and/or hits an excellent cost:quality. Would reorder.
70 – 79: Not an absolute favorite tea but I would pick often, or hits a certain flavor profile I like. Might reorder.
60 – 69: Generally disfavorable, but not actively bad.
<59: something has gone terribly wrong.
