Scent strongly reminds me of Da Hong Pao. Taste is lighter, I think… with a little less of that feeling you get in your chest when you sip a nice da hong pao. I may not have brewed it long enough, or perhaps not hot enough, as it almost looked greenish at first. Will revise this note accordingly if I find that makes a noticeable difference. A little chocolatey, slightly sweet, but with an almost watery aftertaste.

Started out on Salada, moved onto Earl Grey and English Breakfast, discovered Lady Grey and Irish Breakfast, then began loose leafs with a green Earl Grey from twinings followed years later by Adagio’s ingenuitea pot and a sampler. I’ve been hooked since.
