Price: £11.92 ($18.37) for 150g cake.
Price per gram: 7.95p ($0.12)
Sweet: Very smooth, creamy and syrupy with lighter brews. Heavier brews yield an unfavourable metallic taste.
When brewed heavy I would rate this only 75/100.
Dry: Fishy. A yellow aroma…
Wet: Soft, yellow, creamy, light smoke. Not particularly inviting. Porridge sweetness.
5s – Dark brown. Sweet creamy, syrupy sip. Lightly brewed like this it is very pleasant. A cool breeze, milky, butteryness with a hint of cream.
20s – Darker brown. Soft cream on the sip. The body is soap-like. It is stimulating, but not overpowering. It is richly creamy and it swells to a medium strength body.
40s – Very dark brown. This tea is incredibly smooth and rounded with only a trace of an off wood note. Brewing this tea with more leaf and for longer steeps time, I find it gets heavy in a way where I feel it gives too much caffeine / metallic taste.
Flavors: Butter, Creamy, Honey, Soap
