Medium steep: I taste/smell; light—→ fruit (peaches), metallic (iron). Medium honey. Strong—> spices, smoke.
Heavy steep: I taste/smell: light
—→ honey, spices. Overpowering smoke! (Note this steep was quite unpleasant!)
All in all a wonderful tea. I rate a 99 due to the last steep being a nasty one. I do recommend this to those who want to experiment! :D Nice cha qi though.
The warning rings true:
“Bulang junkies beware! Lapsang suchong fans forewarned.”
“’11 Bulang Green Brick is a smoky monstrosity, thick long-lasting, and sweet with a thick mouth-feel. This is must for a fan of lapsang suchong and husky Bulangs. The brick is densely formed, flakes off with a bit of umph. There is little transformation, but the smoke is so strong that it effectively balances any immature tastes that might exist. Hoorah!”
Flavors: Fruity, Honey, Metallic, Smoke, Spices
