Intimidating. Can’t tell if this is raw or ripe. It is certainly old. The smell is intense, primarily of camphor that overwhelms subtle florals. Maybe this was once quite a floral tea. The energy on the tongue is intense also and tastewise is best to discard until the 3rd or 4th steep, when the tingle subsides, flavors beyond old wood open up, and the cloud of camphor dissipates considerably. But it was my 4th tea last night and by then it was time for bed. I don’t feel well this morning so I will have to throw the rest of this session out and revisit my old mystery brick another time.
Flavors: Camphor, Wet Wood
