Sitting down a second time with this tea has been very telling. I believe I may have been over-excited at brewing this tea with my new yixing teapot that I didn’t take enough time to calmly analyze it. The overwhelming flavor of this tea was smoke and bitterness. Unfortunately the bitterness masked any other discernable flavors, and lingered a for a while after drinking. The liquor has a mildly smoky aroma which was pleasant, but the was not as enjoyable while drinking. Maybe this tea will improve with age?
