This is a great tea with complex aromas, awesome mouthfeel, and a balanced taste. The aroma is cooling, floral, and sweet with notes of leather, old books, jiaogulan, honey, and urine. Taste is slightly sour and bitter with a tannic finish. Flavours include those of fenugreek, coriander seeds, and camphor, complemented by wood, peat, and molasses after swallowing. It is a long-lasting, metallic, and spicy aftertaste that induces a warming sensation. The liquor texture is extremely soft, lubricating, and mouth-watering – very nice.

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.
