Hou De 2009 Spring Taiwan San Xia Black Tea, Hand-harvested

Complete honey water! this tea is absolutely fantastic! It has a woody natural flavor going on also but it's mostly honey tasting. I got 3 healthy steeps out of it before it died on me but those three were completely off the hook!
I give it a solid 90!

Adagio Teas Yunnan Gold

Adagio Teas Yunnan Gold brewed in my new Kokoro pot.

Killer tea! first off, this tea is very thick in the mouth, very syrupy. I'm getting a strong caramel note and some kind of fruit, maybe a persimmon and i'm defiantly getting sandalwood? anyway, this tea is very "dark" feeling. great morning tea, nothing better to wake up to than caramel water!
