This is a beautiful tea. It’s double wrapped in a heavy paper. The label is a work of art and the tea cake is lovely. It’s a looser compression and made of intact leaves.
I’m on the 9th steep and it’s still going. Smoked apricots are present, and an interesting floral note. I probably won’t touch this one again for quite some time as the bitterness is way strong. But this tea has potential… it’s going to be amazing with age!
