Very interesting tea. Writing this drinking the second steeping, which is very similar to the first. The aroma of both is excellent, with a very smooth, wet, warm, organic character, and sets very high expectations for the tea. The flavor is something I’m not sure I’ve experienced before. It’s got an incredibly silky, almost oily mouthfeel, and with no bitterness it delivers a complex flavor profile that’s initially subtle, but develops through several layers that I’m not quite sure how to describe. It’s very slightly vegetal, but in such a tamed way that it’s almost like drinking steamed cauliflower. This is a totally new tea experience for me. Not sure if I’ll buy, but I’ll remember it.
