From TeaSource

This is one of the most sought-after black teas from China, despite the fact that it is a “new” black tea having been first produced in 2004. This black tea is a bud only pluck from Wuyi Mountain in the Fujian province and is entirely hand-processed. The cup is thick, rich, complex, sweet, and spicy; think of a cross between black licorice and Guiness.

This was actually the best of the teas I tried from TeaSource. Small leaf size surprised me by the complex nature of the brew. Good characters that developed as I drank the tea, undertones of chocolate and malt.

Be careful to not let this tea over-brew.

wow, i’ve never had a tea like this. i can’t justify the $250/lb price, but i will admit it’s awesome tea. the color of the liquor is rusty orange, and the aroma is tantalizing with cherry, hops, and several other scents mixed in. the body is wonderfully full, and this is a bud-only tea, so of course the mouthfeel is extraordinarily smooth, rolling over your tongue and melting away. the taste is indeed of sweet licorice, honey, and beer, a combination that works amazingly well — something that you might stir together as a recipe and be proud of, but to think that all of this is coming from just one single origin teabud with nothing else added…it’s quite remarkable. this is not so much of a breakfast tea, but something i could imagine drinking at a brunch or high class social event. but alas, i really can’t afford such luxury, so there you go.
