This tea has girth… like an enlarging depth of flavor that takes up your mouth through a shrinking via bitter notes.
From the first steep I knew this was quality. This is some good stuff and I expected to see something more than $50 for a cake and that was true after I looked it up. Still, $45/200g is less than what the average silly 200g pressing is going for when it comes to something that has serious potential such as this cake.
It has some nice plucks to it, but dang this tea is solid and I look forward to having someone remind me to revisit a year down the road.
Mainly tannic vegetables with a hint of ‘stuff’
