brewed in gaiwan

smells rich, smooth and smokey, but not sweet.

After just the first tiny sip, a wave went through my body, not enough to get goosebumps, but a wave of expansive gentle energy from my very center moving outward to the edges of my skin.

The flavor is a bit of ash, malt, straw, apricot, not too complex, but smooth and balanced. No bitterness.

After 2-3 cups my tongue got a very gentle dancing tingling in the middle of it.

After about 4-5 brews I started feeling the tea drunk coming over me.

Huigans and aftertaste, etc were all pretty weak. The only thing I noticed was the tea drunkeness. Not sure if I really enjoyed it though. I would have to say right now, this is not my cup of tea. It will make you drunk, but I don’t like being drunk. If I want to get drunk I’ll drink beer.

Its expensive for sure.

I can’t authenticate it, but it sets a benchmark so anything of lower quality is most definitely not LBZ. Worth a sample at least.

Flavors: Apricot, Ash, Malt, Straw

I like all teas but mostly drink sheng and Taiwan oolong.

My tea notes are just thoughts that come to mind as I drink, so I jot them down. There’s no format to them, just what I want to remember from the experience.

Oh, and why isn’t there a “bacon” flavor option on steepster?
