2 Tasting Notes

I have grown quite fond of this tea. I pull it out every week or two and it seems to be developing quite nicely. It is thick and rich with a good mouthfeel. Quite complex and always surprising me. I am down to about 10 grams and just ordered a tong today.

I let this sit out in the open air for two days after receiving. Just threw 6 grams in a gaiwan and wow! This is a really great tea. This is like a nectar. it reminds me of a 1985 Krug champagne that I had once. Beautiful crystal clear spring honey colored soup. Deep and complex notes of dried tropical fruits and exotic spice. Sweetness is there but not too sweet. The flavors are complex but harmonious, balanced and elegant. I am so excited that I bought this cake. I know it will just keep getting better as it acclimates to my house and continues to age. I will add another review or two on this one in the future. I will also be buying another one for sure because I won’t be able to stay out of this one.

I am fascinated with the liquid in my cup. A tantalizing sensory experience in the here and now, while simultaneously traveling through time and space. Literally drinking history!
