I have been drinking this for about an hour and felt compelled to write a small review off the top of my head.

First thing I would like to note are the few simple flavors. Nutty smells and flavors, I tasted spice (cinnamon, peppercorn) a few times. Although simple, (and yes, obviously delicious) there were many variations to them, if you play with the steeping parameters: temp and water to leaf ratio. I wish I would’ve made notes during my session because the tea is now beginning to fade and I can’t remember what happened while I was drinking it.

I do remember that I used an easy gaiwan, didn’t measure the leaves, and used many different temps and amounts of water. Each steep was enjoyable. To me, that is a testament to the quality of the leaves. You can mess the entire brewing up and it will still come out fairly ok (or great).

I think this specific tea inspired this playful attitude of this session. So I feel that it deserves a fairly high rating. 85 may even be a low-ball rating.

Flavors: Butter, Cinnamon, Nutty, Peppercorn

I like to drink tea late at night and early in the morning.
I’m here to drink new teas and discuss them.

My first tea love was Gyokuro then Tieguanyin now I am exploring the diverse world of puer.

Happy drinking!
