Last sample and I thought I’d write another review because well… I enjoyed it much more this time.
Like before, I got 15 steeps and flavorful to the end. Orchid, floral aroma, fruity taste all there. Slightly mineral, slightly astringent. Definitely complex with a sweet honey aftertaste. This time, when I got to the 6th or 7th infusion, it didn’t become bitter as I remember… No bitterness detected. The deeper I got into the infusions, the more and more mellow and creamy it became, without losing the flavor. It stayed full, rich, with a pleasant smooth mouthfeel.
I had said that because of the price, I’m going to pass on this but I think in the future I will try another sample to see if I experience what I did today.
