I nearly bought a sample of this tea from BLT myself, so I’m glad I could try it anyway courtesy of Roswell Strange. It reminds me of the Jiu Tai Po tea from Yunnan Sourcing which I like a lot – mainly by virtue of its thick texture and bitter, grainy taste profile.
The aroma reminds me of hazelnuts and sunflowers. The taste is quite pungent. It is floral with mild fruitiness. The grainy aspect gives it an ale-like vibe. There is a long-lasting sweet, mineral aftertaste too. The liquor is full bodied with a lively syrupy and velvety mouthfeel.
