This is quickly becoming one of my favourite teas, very aromatic with some similarities with both darker darjeelings and oolongs. I found it to be quite complex, both in the smell and taste.
In particular, the smell is kind of hard to identifyr, although fairly pungent. I noticed some musk, sugarcane (maybe rum?) and malt. Some prunes and floral notes are present too.
The taste starts off with some nutmeg spiciness and brandy impression. Soon, some heavier fruity notes appear, I identified red grapes and plums for instance. It is mostly a mix of controlled sweet and sour tastes, with the spiciness reappearing in the aftertaste to complement the acidity of balsamic vinegar. One other thing I noticed once the tea has cooled down is a little bit of seaweed savouriness.
As for the effects, I feel this tea is fairly warming with decently strong cha qi.
All in all, a very exciting tea, highly recommended.
