Thanks for the sample!!! Quality material – classic bangdong scents on the dry leaf. First few steeps had a great mix of floral and citrus notes with a rich nutty base tone rounded out by fresh grass. Later brews developed a solid bitterness. dense cooling sensation on the midpalate with a slight effervescent tingle. Medium thickness to the body, lots of lingering notes of sugarcane. Tons of sweetness in the cheeks which caused a lot of salivation. Fresh, decent energy, very good characteristics in the mouth. This definitely has some good healthy old trees in the mix (I wont use the G word ;) but would guess this is a blend of tree ages from 50-200 yr old). a great example of bangdong character, good leaf, and good processing.
