oh. my. god. I have found my desert island tea. I think this is the first tea I could see myself drink every day and not get tired of, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves, I’ve only had it twice by now.
This is yet another blind cake purchase and I don’t regret it one bit. This tea has everything, and I find it hard to believe that it could get even better in a couple months, let’s see.
The aroma is very clean and pungent, with notes of oak wood and moss. It is earthy, sweet and spicy. The liquor is full bodied and active, with an oily, lubricating mouthfeel. Both the aroma and texture are great, but the tea shines in its taste.
Overall, the profile is bitter, fruity and woody with light sweetness and tartness. The tea is bursting with strong and well-defined flavours. These include strawberry, celery, cedar wood, lamb meat, vanilla ice cream, and cognac among many others. In the very long and sweet aftertaste, I get further notes of honey, straw, chocolate, tomato vine, and various spices.
After drinking Purple Voodoo, I feel full of energy and my mind is more focused. The qi is good for working, but at the moment I find the tea too interesting to use for work. It asks for attention from me and I find it hard to refuse to pay attention to all its nuances. However, as I get to know it better, it could become a great tea to drink while working, albeit a little pricey for that.
