Anyone here enjoy Yunnan gold rush black tea? I made some for the first time using boiling water and steeping the leaves for 5 minutes and then straining them.

I found that it tasted sort of flowery or almost like a black Darjeeling at first, and then as the cup cooled it tasted more like black pepper, and malty but not like an Assam black tea.
