This stage of the tea session deserves its own paragraph. The dry leaf aromatics and after taste are mirrored in both taste and intensity and are my favorite parts. An intense and floral bitterness lingers before fading and the exact aromatics when you opened the bag return in the form of taste. If the dry leaf aroma is you hearing about the legend of the Slumbering Dragon, then the bitterness is the trek to see one, and the after taste is you finally laying your eyes on it after a long journey. Attempting to pinpoint the notes I get Blueberry, Jasmine, and Watermelon Rind. And despite feeling close to describing its dry leaf aroma and after-taste, I still feel worlds away from accuracy.
Maybe we don’t know what dragons look like after all.
