Brewing Guide:
We recommend using purple clay or porcelain tea ware. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Use about 2 grams of tea leaves (1-2 teaspoons) for every 225 ml of water. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 100°c (212°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time and water temperature for subsequent brewing. If you like milk with your tea, add 10 to 15 ml of sweetened/plain dairy milk and stir.


Very nice taste and chocolate aftertaste

Has become my favorite black tea over Golden Needle. This tea is just plain satisfying. Taste is mostly chocolate and burnt sugar (brulee), but other notes are pleasing woody (vanilla) and tobacco (quite light so it stays tasty!). Definitely recommended, I just wish I had bought more.

Very nice black tea. Buttery, sweet but not overly so. Recommend!

Jennifer (2/20/2010)

Somehow, I do not like Chinese black teas as I am used to Indian ones. I expected more from reading the review, but did not sense much of the chocolatey notes mentioned in the other reviews. I did not dislike it but I did not particularly like it either.
