Yay! I got this today and instantly tore into it!
I have to say it’s super smooth and the flavor seems very soft and slate-y. But I’m not getting much of anything else, sadly. No cinnamon, no sweetness, no vanilla, no angel food cake…
Just smooth, soft, slightly rooty puerh-ness.
But wait!…..if I breathe deeply and exhale with each sip—I can taste something like buckwheat…something like malt-o-meal..something like those whole wheat tea biscuits in those cylindrical packages (“Digestive Biscuits”?). Then, finally some rich buttery notes, upon cooldown.
Wow. Some teas assert themselves right away. This one doesn’t. Patience is key!
