again, I can’t help but fish out a similar black from my cupboard to taste beside this sample! so out came my Pure Gold black tea.
disclaimer: I do not usually steep gongfu but that should change soon.
they both looked the same, more or less, with this Superfine looking just a bit more golden. they both smelled nice too! (sigh)
first steep: Pure Gold tasted sweet (have to admit that to my simple tastebuds that is almost always the first flavor that i notice, lol) and Superfine, it was also good..
after a couple more steepings, I can say that this has stronger cocoa notes and yes this is a stronger tea than the other but it is just right. It is my first Tan Yang and so I probably shouldn’t compare it with a Yunnan? anyways, I gotta lot more learning to do on Chinese blacks XD
