brewed in gaiwan
smells rich, smooth and smokey, but not sweet.
After just the first tiny sip, a wave went through my body, not enough to get goosebumps, but a wave of expansive gentle energy from my very center moving outward to the edges of my skin.
The flavor is a bit of ash, malt, straw, apricot, not too complex, but smooth and balanced. No bitterness.
After 2-3 cups my tongue got a very gentle dancing tingling in the middle of it.
After about 4-5 brews I started feeling the tea drunk coming over me.
Huigans and aftertaste, etc were all pretty weak. The only thing I noticed was the tea drunkeness. Not sure if I really enjoyed it though. I would have to say right now, this is not my cup of tea. It will make you drunk, but I don’t like being drunk. If I want to get drunk I’ll drink beer.
Its expensive for sure.
I can’t authenticate it, but it sets a benchmark so anything of lower quality is most definitely not LBZ. Worth a sample at least.
Flavors: Apricot, Ash, Malt, Straw
