I’m sipping down the last of my samples from Yezi Tea
First steep(3 minutes): Rich aroma of damp forest. The flavor is more like old leather with undertones of chocolate and cedar. Very powerful, yet balanced and well integrated. Good finish.
The second steep was significantly less powerful, yet held all the same flavor components. It seemed more refined; almost like tasting a Bordeaux wine after a California Cabernet. I preferred the first steep, but only slightly.
This isn’t my favorite style of tea, but it was of such high quality that I enjoyed it a lot, so gave it a good score.
