Really nice tea. Bang Dong, it seems, is one of my preferred areas, and this one didn’t disappoint. Really nice herbal notes that are restrained by a mushroom savoriness and fruit and chocolate sweetness.
Great complexity and variety of flavor, and super easy to drink, especially for such a young tea.
