Lovely sticky, floral fruity aroma. Takes a bit to get going past bitter, but opens up to a kind of savory body and mildly sweet flavors in sip and aftertaste. Long lingering floral sweet aftertaste that just goes and goes paired with a quick throat coating in a mildly woolly scratchy, drying way. Strong feeling of uncomfortable jitters in stomach and chest for me mid way through the session, possibly due to current diet regimen/light breakfast? Did not finish session. 4g to 68ml porcelain gaiwan, 205F.

Flavors: Bitter, Floral, Fruity, Herbaceous

205 °F / 96 °C 4 g 2 OZ / 68 ML

Favorite Tea Type: Darker oolong and sheng puerh

Rating Scale:

90-100: Amazing. Will buy and keep on hand all the time if finances and circumstances allow.

80-89: Strong argument for keeping it around all the time, even more than the prospect of trying more new tea. It’s that good.

70-79: Pretty solid. Glad I tried it, several factors that were unique or that I highly enjoyed.

60-69: Nothing that stands out for the most part, but with a quality or two that speaks to me.

50-59: Fairly run of the mill, pleasant but not much more to be said.

40-49: Something here is off putting in an otherwise decent tea.

30-39: There are a few things wrong with this tea. I did not enjoy.

20-29: Disliked this, could maybe see something, some redeeming quality in it others might find worth drinking without spitting back out.

10-19: Begin to question whether any tea is actually, in fact, better than no tea.

0-9: This causes actual food poisoning.
