Finally getting around to trying this. 10 gram sample split into 5 gram chunks, so I threw a chunk into one of the small gaiwans I recently made, since I should probably use them more often. Smoky and fruity aroma off the dry leaves that persists once the leaves are washed. As the chunk starts to open up, a bit of an earthy aroma arises as well. The aroma definitely has some ripe characteristics.
The liquor is a light gold the becomes more orange throughout the session and it is very light and smooth. Fruity with a bit of tobacco and wood. Very gentle viscosity. I am getting a bit of huigan, as well. Definitely do get chi off of this.
The longer this session goes on, the more the sort of woody, dusty, very slightly earthy flavors push to the forefront. A bit of a lasting throat sensation starts to build up, as well. All in all, I’d say this one makes for a good and pretty affordable daily drinker. rhinkle really likes it, so I’d look into getting more of it!
