Having this one actually for the second day. I brought this one out and picked about 10 grams off the cake. I started out with a quick wash on this one . It brews a golden amber color. It has just a touch of smokiness very subdued and a woody pine with a touch of bitter to it. This brews very nice as opposed to the younger versions of this I own. It gives you a bit of the calmness after drinking in and seems to have a little “thickness” when drinking. it is a nice pretty full bodied tea to have in the cup. The taste seems to carry on a bit after drinking it.
