2017 Sheng Olympiad
This is a very unusual tea which is complex and difficult to name every flavor throughout the session. It smells like it’ll be smoky—similar to a cigarette—however, I’m getting a lot of floral & sweet (honey?) notes within the first few steeps. It changes after a few more steeps, though, with a touch of ash; yet, the sweetness still lingers. My palate isn’t as defined as it once was, or perhaps \, my mind wanders too often during these sessions; either way, I’m unable to pick up the other notes (leafy? Mineral? Maybe smoke?). All-in-all, I like this tea. The depth to it is appetizing to my taste and I’ll review this again when I get around to it.
Flavors: Ash, Sweet
