When I got this in the mail I couldn’t wait to bust it open! Er, I mean, carefully separate the leaves. ;)
The information card notes that this tea is better in the next 12 months rather than aged…which is weird, but okay, I wanna have it now anyway!
The leaf smelled smoky, the kind of grilled smoke I remember from January’s offering, which I loved! The tea tastes like that too, but with sweet vegetal notes. In later infusions, I noticed a nice lemon note. Overall, I liked it. Maybe not as much as the Jinuo or Naka, but it’s decent. Have I mentioned I really love this club?
