This feels like it was fermented longer ago than 2017, I imagine that’s just the year of pressing. I find it to be clean-tasting and perfectly drinkable right now. The tea has full body and is slightly on the savoury side, although very well balanced overall with noticeable sweetness and tartness. There are notes of dried fruit, dry wood, peat and roasted nuts. Later steeps display more of camphor notes too. The mouthfeel is smooth, oily and coating. It reminds me a lot of the Yong De cakes by Yunnan Sourcing. Just like those, it also doesn’t last a whole lot of infusions.

I had been drinking Japanese green tea for a while before discovering the world of tea in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
