This is a tea with a very long-lingering aftertaste. It is a very lightly smoky, very very earthy tea. Like a scoop of wet earth and stone in a cup. There’s something I can’t place in the aroma and flavour; it is the key feature that stands out and yet I can’t place it — it’s not merely vegetal but something exceedingly so. It isn’t grassy but tastes of dirt. In the nicest possible way.

Yunnan and Darjeeling blend. Nicely twisted, non-uniform dry leaves. Liquor is a deep, clear brown-hued amber colour with supple, full body and pleasant aftertaste that doesn’t leave quickly. Very light, flowery aroma from the Darjeeling. A little bit of malt. Very woodsy, light taste; mild but not weak. I preferred this on its own with no milk.

Flavors: Floral, Flowers, Forest Floor, Malt, Peat Moss, Round, Toasty, Wet Wood
