I am enjoying another great cup of this tea. I simply cannot find words for describing this tea. It is smooth with a complex texture; tea’s color is of malt and coffee like. There is not hint of one aroma or another that can describe what this tea smells like. It is not bitter, not astringent, and not fruity. It has a dry smell and not unlike water since water is clear with not a smell. Similarly is this tea with regard to odor.

The tea is dry on my palette and not heavy and when I take a sip, I simply want to sip continually without stopping, it is that good.

I like to drink tea less so than when I was aptly reviewing teas. I find that I like less and less of things as I age. I am a somber spirit who prays daily to not be at all. Thank you Steepster for all that you do to enrich tea drinkers.
