Dian hongchas were my introduction to blacks. I still have a fondness for them, tho’ I have moved on.
YS is a bit overwhleming, so many thanks for highlighting a few winners!
I tried the dianhong and imperial needle black tea from YS and like them both. I think dianhong has slightly better balance than the imperial needle. I found black tea a good tea for me during late of the day as it seems to have less caffeine.
I admire you guys drinking hot tea during that hot week. I grew up in southeast Asia and i only drank tea in the office with the convenient of modern technology (AC). I think i might have become soft since i move here.
First off, I thoroughly enjoyed the video, and love the idea of watching you guys review some teas that you actually drink on a day to day basis; that kinda stuff fascinates me.
Second, what is your position on competition tasting/cupping? Is it something you do at all? If so, when and why?
Keep up the awesome work!
Just received a bunch (9!) black teas from Yunnan Sourcing that Scott recommended.
The one I’m currently drinking is the one you reviewed here. Very good, and very cheap ($6 for 50g, I think). Great deal.
Awesome with these coconut macaroons that I’m eating at the same time. Something in the taste matches – even though I don’t really like coconut usually.
