Very similar to the 2013 Yong De Blue, although maybe a little bit less aromatic. It has a balanced taste, slightly edging on the bitter and salty side, but there is some sweetness and umami too. The fishy tones are mostly gone by now. Mouthfeel is thick, creamy and a bit tingly, induces a sensation not unlike alcohol.

Bio

Currently, I am a PhD student at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Ontario. Apart from teas and mathematics, I enjoy sports and traveling, as well as music of all kinds.

I have been a fan of green tea for a while and only recently (in 2017) started exploring other kinds of tea in greater depth. I rarely drink blends or white tea and avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied. The one thing that I am currently missing in my collection are teas from India, in particular some Darjeelings.
