Tastes like a slice of toasted Greek sweet bread made with mastic, while sitting in a rocky old growth cedar forest somehow being delightfully drowned by the perfume of roses and sunflowers. Then on the swallow and in the aftertaste it’s like eating a slice of apple-lychee-cinnamon pie, dotted with raisins and sprinkled with brown sugar, finished with a drizzle of sweet cream. Leather, malt, cocoa, citrus, apricot, rum, spiciness, oats.
It’s all there waiting to be found. Camphorous, heating/cooling, long aftertaste, medium-thick body, good longevity, relaxing qi. I’m floored.
Phenomenal Wuyi black tea probably not for those new to the style but recommended for absolutely anybody curious what the region has to offer.
