My second tasting and as I remembered the smells of this tea set your mind a spinning. I only had 3g left and used my smallest gaiwan with very little water. The aromas are equally represented in the flavors as well. Tons of flowers, hints of ground ginger and a bit of bitterness which oddly adds to the flavor profile. Subsequent steeps and a sweetness emerges along with that bracing bitter which is a kin to licking slate, all along with that sumptuous flower. There is also a great punch of energy that needs to be exploited with my day off today. May this single tree last many more centuries.
