I’ve had a really long day, and I just got home. I pulled this one out completely at random. I didn’t have enough for a large session, so I busted out my small celedon gaiwan. I warmed up the lil guy and dumped the long black leaves inside. I let them sit as I sat down and unwound. I lifted the lid and took in a very unique aroma. The scent was sweet with some heavy grass tones, alike green bean and hardy vegetables. The winter honey lingered in the background but the heavy dull vegetable tone dominated the brew. I washed the leaves once and prepared for brewing. The flavor was light. This is a good tasting brew, but there isn’t anything amazing about it. The flavor begins with some heavy wood tones along with a slight honey taste. The brew was not overly complex, and it didn’t last too long. It was okay for a late night drink, but it didn’t quite hit the spot.
