This is not a flashy tea, per se. The flavor and aroma are pretty much classic Yiwu (straw, savory, slightly grainy, some grapes), the finish clean, the mouthfeel thick but not overly so, the qi present but of the clarifying, rather than intoxicating, variety. It all just harmonizes so damn well and for so long; over time, the flavor might darken a bit, then come to resemble a more savory Fade, but it doesn’t really get watery as the steeps lengthen. Excellent.

I’ve had this for a couple of years now, and I’m not sure if it’s changed much. If anything, I think the flavor’s darkened on the later steeps and it’s gotten maybe a little tarter and fruitier, moving away from white grapes a bit. It’ll be interesting to see where this heads.
