Note: the first batch was sold, this tea is the same material (maocha) picked and processed in the same day but baked in different time. The primary maocha is the same, taste is very very similar but like 10% different since is hand processed and charcoal baked there is little bit different.

The dry leaf smells smooth and roasty. Brews a medium orange. Initial steeps taste predominantly of roast with a bit of tobacco and leather and a light sweetness. There is a bit of a rubber-like note that fades over time. With the third steep I start to get a good mineral note. I was hoping this tea would get better as I go, but it pretty much stays the same.
