Good shou on the savoury side of the spectrum, but it doesn’t offer anything overly special I’d say.

The aroma is has both a marine and fruity character with scents of cherry, wood, and herbs. First infusion is nutty, herbaceous and earthy, while the later ones are brighter and more mineral. Specific flavours include thistles, enoki mushrooms, jostaberries, butter and cranberries.

Maybe the most exciting aspect is the mouthfeel which is oily, colloidal and numbing.

I enjoy your very specific tasting notes! I had to look up what a jostaberry was. :)

haha, my grandparents used to have a jostaberry bush which I ate from a lot during my childhood :D

Never heard of jostaberry!

I bet a lot of people don’t know paw paws either. Jostas are pretty good.

Yep, I only found out about paw paws when I saw them at a farmer’s market in Canada – there are some very niche fruits and I’m always interested in trying new ones :)

The difference between European and American berries… haven’t heard about paw paws.

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.
