This is a fairly simple semi-aged tea with a warming cha qi and an earth/fruity profile. It has aromas of cranberry, smoke, decaying wood, wet earth, and autumn leaf pile. In the taste I could then detect flavours of fermented pear, plant leaves, and geosmin; followed by a sweet drying aftertaste with a raisin note to it. The body is medium to light and the mouthfeel bubbly and throat-tingling.

Thanks for the sample derk! :)

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.
