I didn’t get a whole lot of smokiness from this tea. Maybe a bit, but it wasn’t anywhere near overwhelming. Mostly I got sometimes sweet woody flavors during my session with this one. The body was not particularly strong, but that was alright. Very little bitterness but a bit of mouth-drying once I got to some longer steeps, nothing too unpleasant. Beautiful large and vibrant green leaves after steeping. The dry leaves look correspondingly burly. I’ve been consistently impressed by almost all the Vietnamese teas I’ve had from What-Cha and this one isn’t an exception.

A bit about myself: 22 years old, college grad (Double major in Anthropology and History). I plan to make a career of archaeology and hopefully travel (much of) the world in my days.

I enjoy many things aside from tea, including gaming, mixing cocktails, reading, watching anime, and painting miniatures.

My favorite type of tea is sheng puerh. Particularly younger stuff, if only because I haven’t gotten the chance to taste much of anything aged. I also really like oolong (Taiwanese, Wuyi, Dancong, etc.) and Japanese Green Teas. I do also enjoy most other kinds of tea, but they aren’t what I normally buy. I’m not a huge fan of shou puerh, black tea, or flavored blends, with few exceptions.

I really like interacting with the tea community, so if you ever want to talk or swap teas or anything, feel free to shoot me a message or something. Follow me and I’ll follow you back. Probably ;)
