Has notes of honey in early steeps and a pleasant smoothness throughout. I found this guy a little too finicky, as overbrewing it led to an unpleasant (to me anyways) level of smokiness. Aroma was much smokier than the flavor however. Flavor lasted quite a long time, mostly with honey and some floral aspects, though in later steeps it also developed a mineral, almost salty taste.

After a couple sessions with it, I think this tea is ok, but perhaps a bit too smoky for me. Took some effort for me to get past that taste, and once I did, I appreciated the sweeter, floral aspects, but wouldn’t want to have a whole ton of this tea.

A bit about myself: 22 years old, college grad (Double major in Anthropology and History). I plan to make a career of archaeology and hopefully travel (much of) the world in my days.

I enjoy many things aside from tea, including gaming, mixing cocktails, reading, watching anime, and painting miniatures.

My favorite type of tea is sheng puerh. Particularly younger stuff, if only because I haven’t gotten the chance to taste much of anything aged. I also really like oolong (Taiwanese, Wuyi, Dancong, etc.) and Japanese Green Teas. I do also enjoy most other kinds of tea, but they aren’t what I normally buy. I’m not a huge fan of shou puerh, black tea, or flavored blends, with few exceptions.

I really like interacting with the tea community, so if you ever want to talk or swap teas or anything, feel free to shoot me a message or something. Follow me and I’ll follow you back. Probably ;)
