drank 2015 Smooch by white2tea
5 tasting notes

Had this one sitting around the house for a month after receiving my White2Tea order, where it came as an extra. Picked it up one morning and thought, eh, why not? Then when I unwrapped the ball, even the paper smelled like incense and flowers.

What was so surprising was that the first 4-5 steeps tasted just like the dry leaf smelled. Like sticking my nose into a bowl of potpourri: crushed flower petals, dried fruit and maybe a little dried apple, pieces of cinnamon stick. 8 grams is a lot for my gaiwan, and so it was hard not to bring out the bitterness, but the fragrance kept rolling in, as well as a richer body and slight tongue-drying quality. The cha qi seemed to blast down from my forehead, as if the tea was trying to launch my head off my shoulders.

Sometimes unexpected pleasures are the best ones! Now hoping the order I have incoming from W2T includes another one.
