I bought this after reading a favourable recommendation from AllanK. Thanks – keep up those reviews.
Dry: Dusty, musky, chocolate. Loose leaves. The leaves looks like roasted Oolong. There is a powdery dust on the inside of the zip lock pouch.
Wet: Aroma of porridge, sugary sweet and hot milk. There is a mixture of dark green and dark brown leaves. No large twigs.
It brews dark brown in seconds and has a soft flavour of porridge oats, with a soft sugary sweetness that is picked up on the sip and continues into the finish. No fishiness here. Not creamy sweet like White2Tea CNNP and not as dark as YS Menghai 2008, so somewhere in between.
This tea sits well above low quality ripe, but is too singularly porridge-sweet to be outstanding. It delivered an impressive number of steeps (7-10) and is still going.
