I recieved the tea a week ago with my tea club shipment. The dry leaves had a distinct peach note which after heating in a gaiwan opened up with the addition of cinnamon, vanilla, toasty malt, and some florality.
The first brew was full bodied with a lot of floral notes, a good touch of minerality, flint, some toast, and a hint of peach. The tea lasted about 8 brews, however the tea peaked on the second brew and was much smoother and less complex thus forth. The teas energy is warm and calming, but definitely slight and requires focus. There was a nice cooling in the mouth for the first few brews accompanied by some sweetness.
I’ll update this review next time I brew it. Overall my first impression is that this is a good entry/mid-level yancha, aromatic and flavorful with good sensations in the mouth. Well priced.
