+1 to this, I have had a couple really good teas in September not sure which should claim top prize. I will say the one that surprised me the most was a Traditional Fired 1,200 m Dong Ding sample that was thrown in with my order from The Mandarins tea room. (Not currently listed on his site, do not know if he will list it in the future).
For using the words Traditional fired, it was not nearly as roasted as I expected it to be, and the roast profile while present, was minimal, but it was still incredibly buttery and fruity.
