Beautiful dark tea. Very strong smell of earth and smoke after a rinse. Smells like Scotch Snuff which I would guess very few people reading this have smelled before lol! 5g to 80ml which is standard for me. I’ve been reading through the archives of MarshalN so I’m trying to take his advice and leave tasting notes out. This review is mainly for me to have a list of what I want to buy a cake of when the money comes. There is a lot of body warmth happening with this tea, and even a tingling in the nose now and then a bit like when you burp after a heavily carbonated beverage. There is some bite on the tongue and cheeks and a long-lasting dryness in the mouth. Hitting my stomach rather hard considering it isn’t empty. I’d be very curious to try this cake again in a few years! Not sure I’ll be buying one right away but it’s fairly cheap and I look forward to drinking the rest of this 25g sample.
