Since I’m ranchsitting and I don’t have internet, phone-tapping over 4G waves it is. I had the vaccine but haven’t noticed an increase to 5G speeds ;) It’s a challenge to express myself with my thumbs. That means more disjointed notes than usual. I hate smart phones.
Mellow and clean aged tea with enough power to engage the senses. Aroma sticks in nose. The winey-redfruity and deeply sweet smells related to the leaf serve as nuances in the brewed tea; they are not the main attraction by any means. Tea thickens as it cools. Mineral after swallow. Warming and cooling camphor. Relax. Drying-creamy osmanthus aftertaste. Something about pungent rinsed leaf aroma reminds me of beer-brewing or wine-making but it’s not yeast. Definitely an aged oolong. If from 90s, I could’ve been anywhere from first to eleventh grade.
I’m hoping Leafhopper can add to this!
Tea Urchin provided this aging beauty with a cake order a few years ago.
