Description:

Material came from the same tea trees with Longjing green tea. The dry tea leaves are rolled tightly and full of aroma.

The liquor has a deep ruby red, aroma of ripe berries, nuts and cinnamon with a little dark chocolate flavor, fresh and velvety smooth mouthfeel, with a surprisingly long, charming aftertaste.

Really worth a try!

Cocoa delight

5 stars 5.0 This review helped: 0 / 0

Leaves are completely black. Dry leaves smell like cocoa. Wet leaves smell after cocoa with the sweet scent of ripe fruits. The brew is nicely balanced and smoothed. The taste is sweet. You can find there a taste of fruits, nuts, and light taste of wood. No astringency, no bitterness - simply the concert of tastes. The second infusion 10s, to get more intense teaste. It seems to me that the cocoa becomes more like dark chocolate. The flavour is more intense, sweeter, just more chocolate in the taste. Still there is no bitterness or astringency. Very good red tea, I am giving 5 stars.

5g, gaiwan 170 ml, water 100°C - 20s/10/15/20/30/40

Quotes

„Pu'er; 普洱. Also Puerh, Pu - er etc. Pu'er is the modern pinyin spelling. The place name of the Old City of Pu'er through which pack horses transported the tea from Southern Yunnan. The names were recently changed; Pu'er is now Ning Er and nearby Simao has the adopted name of Pu'er. Locally, in spoken Chinese at least, Ning Er is still Pu'er. “
