Thick, warming, and smooth, with notes of sweet forest floor, medicinal mushrooms, ripe plums, sandlewood, and a hint of smoke. The tea brews so dark and thick it’s practically shu pu’er—although with a lot more complexity. While I liked many of this tea’s qualities, the wetness of the tea was it’s biggest flaw, IMO. Too many of those mushroomy/fungal-like notes and sensations for my tastebuds. I think this tea would fare better with a few years of dry storage.
