Demon Slayer is one of the first huangpian shengs I get to try. If this tea is anything to go by, I should get more of these. The value seems really good. Even though it doesn’t have too many distinctive flavour notes, I found it to be very enjoyable in many respects.

The dry leaves have a floral, sweet smell, while after the rinse I got a strong petrichor and grass aroma. Somehow, it reminds me of Copenhagen, with its wet, green smell. Later on, there are also scents of roast chicken and rust.

The taste is quite sweet, vegetal and astringent overall. There are notes of dry grass, sugarcane, green pepper, bay leaf and coriander seeds. Aftertaste is somewhat metallic, nutty and floral. At certain points it almost reminds me of yancha aftertaste. The mouthfeel is cooling, thick and soft, with a TGY like sickly feeling occasionally.

I got 12 infusions out of it before the taste profile became flat and astringent, which I find pretty good for a tea at this price range. The interesting thing is that it is very loosely pressed, so I expect it to age quite fast.

So glad Im not the only one that smells the Copenhagen. Weirdly enough, Im beginning to think it is a house smell/flavor, as I smell it on most of the teas I’ve had from W2T. Not bad or good, just intriguing.

heavy mouth feel but very light on flavor. It’s like a mix of bitter, citrus, and pepper, but again very light flavor. very relaxing effects

Drank this Grandpa Style off and on throughout the day.

I selected it initially to brew because I was feeling something a bit more vegetal (weird for me, I know!) but didn’t want to go down the green tea sort of path – I also needed something with more “punch” to it to help with staying awake and general alertness really early on a Monday morning…

This was definitely intense as a Grandpa style tea – and maybe not necessarily an experience I would replicate again. Though it did serve that “punch of caffeine” sort of thing that I was craving. Initially bell pepper notes and a peppery black pepper finish. At one point I hit a brewing sweet spot where the taste was accented by bright, sweet lemon and red fruit – but then we ventured deeper into the steeping and the taste evolved into more of a pithy, bitter lemon and aperol kind of taste along with those harsher, forward green notes.

So-so experience flavour wise.
