I couldn’t resist trying my new cake of 2017 Snoozefest. It was pressed relatively recently, so it may still need to sit a bit longer before its “ready” to drink. In my session with this tea I still found it very enjoyable. If anyone is still waiting to try their cake, I recommend trying it soon. I will be letting the rest of my cake sit for a few months. If the tea has changed substantially in that time I will post an update for anyone curious. The tea is sweet, with notes of pine and the spice notes I often associate with high quality white tea buds, Darjeeling, and some Nepalese teas.
Snoozefest is still young though, and has a strong astringency and mild bitterness that keep you coming back for more.
The Qi is both relaxing and stimulating.
I wish I had another cake of this tea to age long term, because this cake will be consumed fresh (I don’t have that kind of patience, the tea is already great!)
