Scent of the wet leaf:
Roasted sweet potatoes

Scent of the liquor:
Still sweet potatoes and syrup, though more syrupy and less potatoey. The liquor is a deep red brown.

The notes of grain and bread are still predominant. The best part of this tea so far is the honeyed syrupy aftertaste it leaves behind. I don’t get any real sweetness except way after I’ve already swallowed. This tea LINGERS, like my beloved Dan Cong. There’s no bitterness or astringence either, just…amazing tea in its purest form.

My tea habits:

*I am an unashamed Lipton iced-tea drinker (mass quantities, year round).
*I like hot teas but only in cold weather (and occasionally late summer nights or mornings).
*I love Japanese greens (the more seaweed-y the better) and good strong malty black teas.
*I do NOT love smoke in any form.
*Vanilla, cinnamon, or lemon anything will usually pique my interest.
*I’m working on pu-erh but it’s definitely going to take some time to grow on me.
