From Camellia Sinensis

From the neighbouring region of Assam, Meghalaya, comes this aesthetic tea with long leaves combined with intoxicating coppery buds. Its liquor is round and offers a well-balanced tannic structure highlighted by its powdery texture reminiscent of cocoa. Its woody and caramelized notes nuanced by fine floral accents support its finish – both soft, and full of freshness.

Cultivar: B157 & AV2
Producer: Mme. Saiwan
Altitude: 1800m
Date of harvest: October 7

This tea has an invigorating dry leaf aroma, but it didn’t leave a strong impression at first otherwise. However, I found myself reaching for it fairly often afterwards, so there is something attractive about it. I guess the fairly light body and a good balance of sweetness and woodiness make it an easy-to-drink tea without the need for much engagement.

Initial scent is sweet with hints of cookies, popcorn, cocoa, and chickpeas. It gets less pungent during the session, and the range of aromas is more in the neighborhood of charcoal, forest floor, and moss.

First infusion is smooth, sweet and milky with an upfront cocoa taste. There are also some fruity, vegetal, metally and woody flavours. Later steeps are somewhat tannic with a short-lived bitterness.
