"An aromatic tea; peach/apricot high notes over a haunting, earthy Puerhh-like background note. Pretty leaf structure. I concur with the other positive reviews. A little lighter bodied in cup than expected, but would make a very nice addition to a blend if you prefer a heartier cup. Not inexpensive, but probably worth it."

"A very good, smooth Yunnan, but in my opinion it does not stand out enough to be worth the extra cost compared to options like the Yunnan GFOP (ZY40)."

Employee Recommendations:  
Name: Amanda
"I start craving this tea when it starts to get a bit colder and the leaves begin to change colors. It has warming cocoa notes and a bit of a spiciness which makes it perfect choice to start an autumn or winter day."

Name: Karen
"This tea has a lot of golden tips and steeps to a rich terra cotta color with a dark, sweet aroma. The spicy, earth flavor reminds me of the rich smell of a newly fallen leaf. If you enjoy red wine, dark chocolate or even a thick, dark beer, you will like the taste of this Yunnan black tea."
