Of all the great black teas ITC offers, this one is the best deal. It is almost as good as Yunnan Royal Gold, but at about 1/3 the price! The Royal Gold is just a bit smoother and more delicate, but not really better.
This is one of Roy's Great Teas of China in his book. With the problems besetting Keemuns in recent years, this tea is left as the premier Chinese black.
I like it with 2 tsp. per 5 oz. at 193 F for 3 minutes. I brew a total of 3 infusions, although the 3rd one is pretty mild.
