I’m finding there is definitely a “first taste” bias, among tea tastings. It’s probably the case for everyone: most teas taste best when you tried it the first time. This applies to food as well.

From the look of the leaves, I expected it to taste like Lapsang Souchong, but it was nothing like. I was surprised how similar this one was to Tie Guan Yin. Hard to say how it is similar/different. Seems more nuanced and complex flavors than TGY. Less “refreshing” than TGY. Isn’t as overpowering with the caffeine as TGY. Definitely an Oolong. More on the green side than black in terms of taste and color of liquid.

Flavors: Grapes, Grass

A real nice one! Woody but not in a bad way. I am no connoisseur of wood, but I would say it tastes a bit how cedar might taste. Hints of cherry, but not sweet. Texture is smooth, not chalky.
