I think this is a good basic, straightforward dianhong. It has the classical, smooth caramelly profile and is robust. The leaves look cool. I would also say that it is a bit boring though. I also have a Yunnan black bi luo chun from Yunnan Sourcing that looks very similar to this (and is pretty cheap as well), and that one is so much more interesting and aromatic, with much more flowery, spicy and peaty notes going on. So I don’t think this deserves the name ‘top grade’. Nice tea for grandpastyling at work though.
