An interesting concept, blending white and black tea. It tastes more or less how you’d expect, but the progression of flavours is interesting, with more of a dianhong character early on and aged white notes being prevalent in later steeps.
Aromas of the tea are predominately sweet and woody, just like the flavour profile in the mouth in fact. There are notes of autumn leaf pile, oak wood, and orange blossoms. The taste hits flavours like stonefruits, chocolate, and fermented fruits. There is a nice sourness developing in late infusions. Aftertaste is long and cooling and overwhelmingly sweet. It has notes of apricots and various spices, as well as a slightly metallic tone and a tingling sensation in the throat. The mouthfeel is not very memorable, but decent. It is drying, smooth, and somewhat soft. I can feel there is a decent amount of caffeine in the tea, but the feeling is not too rushy thankfully.
