|This tea had a flavor that I have never experienced before. Wasn´t sure if it was the 2008 age of this black tea or its flavor. The Chinese date note was sort of like sweet pickle relish and/or lychee, very unique flavor.|
|very tasty tea...good for two or three infusions..|

|I get more cocoa than dates but this is totally fantastic. Sweet and smooth with a strong (and long) aftertaste of wood, smoke and fresh bread with the occasional hint of a bit of preserves.|
|Western tea merchants considers the Flowery Orange Pekoe to be the quality section of the Camellia Sinensis.
I manage to observe 1-2 consistent brews. Alternatively, i manage to observe 2-3 consistent brews.
To fully appreciate this tea, skill in preparation like all Gong Fu tea is evident. I suspect that the use of the leaf is to add a hint of sweetness
to the smoked flavor.
A matter of preference rather than rating. A skill preparer could provide
a different experience and rating.
|The flavor here can be described as perhaps half-way in between Tan Yang Te Ji and Bai Lin Ju Hong. Sweet like apricot jam with hints of yellow and black plum. Does not get as bitter as a Bai Lin if the infusion time is extended too long. The taste of the tea is smoother when the infusion stays under three minutes, and two infusions are possible.|
|Looking at the infused tea leaves, just tender buds, it only can be an excellent tea, and it is. Aroma is somewhat faint, however, the flavor is beautiful if steeped longer than I normally do with my black teas. Another good tea among the excellent selection of black teas of TeaSpring.|
|Similiar to Sichuan Gongfu, but stronger in taste and less aromatic. Good for two or three infusions. |
|Very light and tasty tea. I enjoy drinking very much it. I plan to brew it different ways to expand my opinion.|
|very good congou, with classic sweet and a smoky hint. very enjoyable, but nothing really unique|
