A well aged tea that reminds me of some of Changtai examples I’ve tried. The taste is woody and savoury with mild bitterness, earthiness and also very limited astringency. There is a distinct flavour of beetroot, as well as some hints of agarwood, Worchestershire sauce, camphor, nigella seeds, barley and bread. The aftertaste is sweet, nutty and a little cooling. Overall, the tea also induces a decent warming sensation and can get into your head a little bit – though not in an aggressive way.
