Thought I would finally take some time to put down some notes regarding this tea. The dry cake is very tightly compacted but best practices seems to be breaking of fairly large pieces of the beng. After an initial flash rinse of 20 seconds to losen the leaves a bit I literally smelled this tea for about 2 minutes. The warm wet leaves have in my estimation, not an approximate scent of freshly ground wheat flour, and the exact smell of freshly baking bread. This is one one the things that I love about tea, the way the exact same leaves can, depending on processing, and other parameters deliver such incredibly diverse flavor experiences… This is truly one of those teas that offers something I didn’t expect.
