I received this tea as a sample. Thank you, Song Tea! Sniffing the dry leaf made me think of Nag Champa incense. It didn’t truly smell like Nag Champa, but made me think of it.
The theme with this tea overall is “evocative” – there are no obvious flavors, just haunting notes. It is elegant.
Notes that come to mind are muscovado, cocoa, caramel, again, incense.
It is very warming. At the end of the cup, a pleasurable tang appears.
It was beautiful.
