ill do a full review right up front:

when i smell the brick, it has a musty earthy smell

when i smell the brewed leaves, it smells the same as it is dry

when i smell the brewed tea, it smells like heavy earth.

when i taste it it tastes like heavy earth taste and little notes of copper taste :)

IMHO, this is a good tea, but i have had better, i will let my second box I’m waiting for age a bit :)

many thanks to Scott Wilson and Yunnan sourcing for this nice tea :)

I like this one a good bit, I keep a tin of this on top of the fridge at all times. You should try it as an iced tea also its pretty good

hmm…. this time around it has a strong camphor taste :P i don’t think there is any shrimpyness but yes, a strong camphor taste :D

maybe because i could break the corners off and the middle did not rinse well?
