EDIT: THIS WAS TASTING NOTE 8000!!! DAMN!!!
I’ve been sitting on this sample for a while; but I finally decided to brew it up the same day that I tried out the Rose Aroma Dancong. I was a little worried that I was just in a bad head space and that would cause this tea to taste weird/off to me too, but this tasted fucking amazing – better than I could have expected, actually! Here’s my instablurb with the tasting notes I picked up:
Delicious from start to finish – notes of lychee, orchid, floral apricot/quince, almond skins, and dryed out wood; all alongside a heavy roast and hearty astringency!!
