This is an interesting and original tea. First thing you notice is it’s smokiness, but when brewed properly more complexity and nuances can be extracted. It has a thick body for a soup that is on the clear side and doesn’t suggest that at a first glance.
However, at $80 a 200g cake, it deserves some tougher scrutiny as it’s somewhat pricey. It’s not “better”, well rounded, balanced or intense than some other cheaper teas, basically you’re paying for it’s originality, an unusual palette of flavours.
I like it a lot. I’m not sure if I’d buy it again (at this price).
