Ying Hong No. 9 Black Tea
robust like a meal
By 
I'm sipping on the Yingde and find it to be full of satisfying aromas and very pleasant on the palate. It has a flavor that reminds me of breakfast, possibly I'd say cereal-like, slightly malty and rice-like, definitely robust like a meal. I did not put milk in it so it stands well on its own. I brewed with nearly boiling water for less than a minute - seems to have made a tasty result. It appears to have a little caffeine effect but nothing jolting.
