Fly-by note. I haven’t had the desire to analyze teas lately.

Autumn 2018 harvest. Very rich aromas and flavors with a beautiful chocolate note that reminds me of a Laoshan black but more refined. Gentle roasted peanut mingles with the chocolate, some tobacco-earthiness and florality. A good amount of stonefruit in the undertone of the first steep lifts up the darker midtones. In the second steep, the undertone moves herbaceous. Lots of texture, the full body with modest astringency manages to also feel light, smooth and silky. Elegant tea, really. Too elegant for my tastes but highly recommended.

Maybe more details in the future, or at least the addition of aroma and flavor descriptors at the bottom of the note.
