First off, thank you so much Pureleaf for giving me the chance to taste this fantastic tea.

Dry smell: It is a fairly light smell. I can sense a grassiness with a light sweetness like fresh cut plants. It also has a darker spicy not.

Wet smell: This tea has a very smoky smell. It has a light sour smell and a light vegetal taste but the spicy smokiness is by far the strongest smell.

Taste: This tea is very hard to place. I can taste the smokiness and a spicy peppery taste. There is a starchy note but also a vegetal undertone. It is nice and a lot darker than I thought it would be. My favorite part about this tea is the mouthfeel and aftertaste. It is a very smooth tea and slightly thick. The aftertaste is fantastic. The smoky flavor is left in the front of your mouth and the vegetal taste sticks in the back of your throat. Overall it’s a very nice light but deep tea. I thoroughly enjoyed this tea. Thanks again Pureleaf

Bio

I’m new to the high quality tea world and eager to get started tasting and enjoying a whole new world of flavor. I’m a high school senior, 18 years old, and have been an avid tea drinker my whole life. Previously I would drink generic tea bags. Recently I have been getting into Gong Fu Cha and loose leaf teas. Not only do I enjoy the flavors, but the ceremony is a nice way to relax and unwind after a hard days work. I aspire to try many different teas and meet others from the tea community. If anyone has any teas they would be willing to send as samples I would be very thankful to you for helping expand my tea knowledge and pallet.
