some smoke in wet leaf.

Quick rinse followed by 10s steep.

1. Lightly woody, and rounded sweet, floral aftertaste on front of tongue w/ some heady feeling. Decent texture

2. Medicinal and hint of bitter that evolves back into the deep floral that coats the mouth.

3. Darker woody and somewhat floral, somewhat sweet. Some background mushroom like note.

4. Not much taste upfront (maybe sour woody), but a vegetal tinged floral in the breath

5. Mint like but very light

6. Dying out, leaf taste w sweet floral edge

7. Stopped here. Thinned out woody taste, slightly honeyed note

Overall this was pretty nice. Maybe it’s due to its youth, but I’ve been trying to drink through my Qi xiang cake and it’s simply nowhere near as pleasant in taste or feeling. At any rate, I’m no longer in my caking phase, having realized that I do not have puer often enough so I have no plans to buy any.

Just a chronicle of a stranger’s tea journey. Keeping old notes up to see progression, but no longer really believe in all of them. Trying to learn!!

As of 4/21/21, I will no longer assign numerical ratings to a tea unless it is terrible enough to warrant one. There are a fair amount of solid teas out there, and reading mildly subjective reviews from others > very subjective numerical rating that gets skewed by Steepster’s calculating system anyway.
