I’m enjoying this tea, having thought I wouldn’t after giving the rinsed leaves a smell (it smelt like a volcano, smoky, sulfuric, with a tinge of medicinal).
The smokiness is definitely pretty present, however it has started to age a little into camphor notes which I like. It has a nice mouthfeel, it gives a relatively thick liquid which came as a surprise given the price of the cake. Not particularly complex, but a very pleasant brew for its price ($8.50 for 100g toucha).
