Wow. This is really good. First taste was dusty and reminded me hay but as it cooled it reminded me more and more of Butiki’s Taiwanese Wild Mountain Black. It’s different, but very close I think. I did get a lot of nutty taste and a light honey sweetness.

Having steeped my entire sample over the course of today, and resteeped each cup once as well, I can say that it will get somewhat bitter if oversteeped, but it didn’t get to the point of being undrinkable or unpleasant.

When completely cool, I got really strong cinnamon notes – not sure where that came from!

I would love to keep this in my cupboard. I’m glad I got this sample.
