This tea is a swift kick in the nuts. Woo!
The aroma is very light smoke, but very strong apricots. There are so many flavors that it’s hard to pick them all out. Let’s just say that everything blends together very nicely. It had a stronger bitter finish at first, but it’s only on certain sips and seems to be calming down. It’s not an unpleasant bitterness… it’s hard for me to explain. Some teas have a yucky bitterness that makes you go blargh. This is different. It’s quite nice.
I’m only on steep 3 and this already has my heart pumping. This tea assures me that I am ALIVE!
This was a great way to start the weekend!
