Threw myself off with this tea… I linked Fujian with my past experiences and thought this would be dark and cocoa. This ended up being a medium brew with a fruit nectar taste and texture to it. Leaf ends up going from a dark brown/black to an olive leaf with veins that show up when the color starts to pop. Aftertaste is present, adds a little viscosity to the saliva. Back of the throat is feeling dry while the mouth is not. Kind of an odd after feeling that I am not enjoying, but I will have to retry it at another time to see if the back of my throat stays dry again because that’s pretty odd.

I had the same taste. Alistair described it as “Ripe fruit”. It is definitely sweet, but I got the same weird moist dry paradox too. Hence me sharing it to see if you would get the same thing.

Really interesting. Definitely roasted with a progressive cashew nuttiness, followed by an intense sweetness. Actually reminded me of a sweeter Dan Cong with notes of riper fruits like a very ripe banana or a plantain. Some might be off put by the ripe fruit sweetness. This tea is clearly from an older plant giving it a lot of complexity that some may or may not detect. More for connoisseurs and the adventurous, really.

As for me, I’m not sure if I’m in love with it. I’d love it if I’m in the mood for it.
