This one is similar to other YQH productions, but also more pungent at the same time. However, neither the taste profile nor its texture is particularly engaging and I didn’t find the cha qi to be very pleasant either.

Dry leaves have an aroma of almond shells in a Chinese medicine shop, while after the rinse I can smell wood in a fireplace too. The taste is woody, herbacecous and somewhat sour. There are notes of sage, burned butter, nettle as well as a protracted camphor one. The aftertaste has both some bitterness and biting sourness.

Initially, the liquor is quite thin and astringent. Once the leaves open up, the mouthfeel is rather airy, creamy and a little bubbly.

I had been drinking Japanese green tea for a while before discovering the world of tea in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
