Backlog from two weeks ago; another gong fu session with Dinosara, this time with a delicious dragonwell (no wonder they are so expensive!) from the magnanimous purveyor of mystery boxes, MissB!
My notes start with a curious phrase: “smells so familiar…”
I obviously never figured out what was familiar about it, and now I don’t recall! Anywho, on to the steeps!
15 second: buttery, nutty, sweet in a fruity way.
25 seconds: just a touch astringent, in a way that is making me salivate. More vegetal/artichoke-like. Smell reminds me of a floral-spiced fruit.
30 seconds: Top notes are still juicy, but astringency dominates the flavor.
30 secodns: less astringent but also less flavorful. The saliva accumulating in my mouth from the astringency is leaving we with a sweet aftertaste, though, which is nice.
40 seconds: kinda generic green tea flavor…
1 minute: almost no flavor…
Good, but not as good as the one from Verdant. It might have lost something to age, I don’t know.
Flavors: Butter, Fruity, Nutty
