Leaves look very nice, bits of green and purple colour. Leaves broke apart nicely and allowed for whole breaks, very little crumbs/dust. Dry cake and leaves has a very smoky aroma, almost liquid smoke like, very overpowering. 4 gms / Yixing Pot / 200 F – Steep 1: 2 rinses / 30 sec steep – very strong and overpowering smoky aroma prevails. Tried to finish steeped liquor, just too smoky for my pallet. Will put this one away for a few months, and see if the smokiness settles.
