My today’s session with the Rooster King was less sweet and tangy than some of my earlier notes suggest. It tastes more nutty and savoury, with a very present earthiness and flavours of cocoa and sweet potatoes.

The aroma is quite interesting, dry leaves smell of soil and cherries. The latter also appears in the empty cup scent, which is somewhat flowery and at times reminds me of orchids. The wet leaf smell is very different. The main notes are celery root and chocolate, and these are very much present in the aftertaste as well.

Hi, I am a researcher in math, physics and computer science. Apart from teas and mathematics, I enjoy sports and traveling, as well as music of all kinds. Connect at https://rateyourmusic.com/~Togo

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.
