This is a very interesting and unique experience for me. The dry leaves smell is quite pungent and has some marzipan, almond. On the other hand , in the wet leaf aroma I found some fire, wet earth and dry wood notes. This is a rich, smooth and full bodied tea with quite a lot of complexity. The taste is mostly sweet and mineral, but it has some deep coffee like roastiness, savoury notes like fish broth, light cocoa bitterness, anise & cinnamon spiciness and acidity in the background. In the protracted aftertaste, similar qualitites are present, but motly the sweet bitter, spicy and roasty dominate (in that order). The mouthfeel is velvety, mouth-watering and slightly powdery and dry in the finish.

I just wish the tea would last longer than the ~8 infusions I can get out of it. However, given the price and how strong the flavour is, that’s probably unreasonable to expect.

I had been drinking Japanese green tea for a while before discovering the world of tea in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
