Plum and fruity tones- almost like a fruitcake in the background. Note of honey sweetness. Barn-y, almost bitter note near the end of the sip. Make me think of copper when I drink it.
Second infusion at 4 minutes with same temperature. The astringency is softened. Still has nice flavour.
Flavors: Barnyard, Fruity, Honey, Plums
Wheat-like aroma with hints in the flavour. Clean vegetal tone. Hint of malty sweetness at the back of the throat. Flavour is a bit weak for my liking- I may try to infuse at boiling in the future.
Flavors: Malt, Sweet, Vegetal, Wheat
Very spicy (too spicy for my liking) and hits you at the back of the throat. Overall, very savoury profile. Aroma is very herb-like. Slight chamomile-like sweetness. Hint of peppermint tone.
Thanks to Sil for sharing with me!

Amazing combination of the green tea, roasted rice and matcha. Just the right mix of vegetal and oceanic flavours. There’s a nice twinge of the grapefruit-y note that I normally find in oolongs in the aftertaste which I love. Flavours are very well balanced. Roasted rice note complements the flavour profile very nicely.
Flavors: Floral, Roasted, Vegetal
