4 Tasting Notes
So good! I don’t review very many teas because the flavors are so subjective. But, this is one of my favorites at this price point. I recommend this tea to be drank from a snifter or nosing glass. It’s aged well, not too wet or dry. It’s crisp and clean, but with the richness of an aged pu’erh. Complex, but not muddy. It’s a thinker…which allows the pallet to explore and study in a dark-wooded, leather furnished, old library.
Flavors: Brandy, Burnt Sugar, Leather, Oak, Scotch, Tobacco
It’s young, still, but the taste is palatable enough. But the buzz…wow! I could barely sit through the 5th steeping after a long day at work. This is what I call “housework tea.” It’s almost like a small bump of coke without the disgusting crash. I got another 10 steeps the following day and would’ve kept going but I cold brewed the leaves in a pitcher of water…still good to go.
