This certainly has more complexity and body than your average green or oolong with notes of malt and chocolate and cherry perhaps. I also like light floral teas like darjeeling and this will appeal to someone with a similar palate, particularly if you enjoy Himalayan cloud tea or second flush flowery orange pekoe. I am partial to a bit of tung ting which has a 'cleaner' fresher taste whilst this has more 'black tea' characteristics.
Da Hong Pao
1) amber color which was good 2) taste of tea wasnt full-bodied but it’s smooth. 3) no bitter taste on both tea n tea leaves after drinking For this price, it’s definitely worth buying.
This tea is a powerful serving of awesomeness. It has a smell of sun-dried wood and an earthy and organic taste. It reminds me of small lakes and streams, dry leaves and dark soil. It reminds me of home. This tea, together with a japanese sencha and an indian black tea, is the third pillar in my collection of teas. I have yet to find the fourth.
An amazing tea
This tea has a wonderful depth of flavor. I don’t quite know how to say it, it is like a variety of flavors in every sip, each distinct yet somehow all one. I've been trying the various Chinese teas to see what I like, and this one has moved to the top of my list.
I've been given this tea by my friend for Christmas few years ago and it's that kind of tea I feel having rather occasionally (this might apply only to me tho as I prefer light floral teas) It has trully unique rich body and smoky taste notes as well as caramel. For anyone enjoying this type of tea Rare Tea Co is the one to choose. Tins are beautiful too and I am lucky to got couple of different ones before they changed design which is 'too loud' for my taste. But isn't it about the content? ;)
