Hmm. The aroma of this tea out of the package was fairly appealing – a darkly, somewhat chocolate, a bit hay-y grassy profile. Reminiscent of Laoshan Black, but darker/more roasted, and more rough around the edges. The flavour, though, is not quite working for me. There’s almost a burning plasticky taste? It’s not present in the aroma of the brewed tea, which doesn’t have any misplaced notes. It’s really strange. A couple sips in, and I’m tasting less burning plastic, but I’m still having trouble identifying what I’m tasting, other than some roasted flavours. Very odd tea. I’m not sure what to make of it yet, so I guess I’ll review it again once I get to the second half of my sample packet. **This is the Spring 2019 harvest.
