I drank another session of this one with some dear teafriends yesterday. I am posting a separate review, as this session was from a different source than the sample I tried at a previous date. This one seems to have seen slightly drier storage than my previous sample. Still very good though – spicy notes aplenty in the first half of the session with some woodiness (cedar?) and a dry finish that reminds me of walnuts.

This sample had much more of a sourness in the corners of the mouth that I associate with dry storage than the first sample I had. It wasn’t a deal-breaker, but it was slightly less pleasant. Still a very good session, but I think this one benefits from a wetter storage.

A bit about myself: 22 years old, college grad (Double major in Anthropology and History). I plan to make a career of archaeology and hopefully travel (much of) the world in my days.

I enjoy many things aside from tea, including gaming, mixing cocktails, reading, watching anime, and painting miniatures.

My favorite type of tea is sheng puerh. Particularly younger stuff, if only because I haven’t gotten the chance to taste much of anything aged. I also really like oolong (Taiwanese, Wuyi, Dancong, etc.) and Japanese Green Teas. I do also enjoy most other kinds of tea, but they aren’t what I normally buy. I’m not a huge fan of shou puerh, black tea, or flavored blends, with few exceptions.

I really like interacting with the tea community, so if you ever want to talk or swap teas or anything, feel free to shoot me a message or something. Follow me and I’ll follow you back. Probably ;)
