33 tasting notes

At first penetrating foresty aromas. Leather, wood, barnyard, undergrowth, and cooling/medicinal feeling.
The liquor is thick and coating, mineral. Not very aggressive, feels smooth and complex, leaving an interesting aftertaste in the throath difficult to define. Lingering cacao notes. The aftertaste changes and evolves in the next 10 minutes, inducing saliva.
This is a strong and serious drink. I think of a cold and confident middle age man. I think of a deodorant.
As the session goes on it gets more drying, herbal and bitter. The aftertaste doesn’t leaves me alone.
At first the tea was polite, but now is showing his true nature of asshole.
After 6/7 steeps I decide to take a break, as my mouth is dry and the tea is strong.
The qi is slowing me down a lot, giving some numbness but I wouldn’t say relaxing.
After the break is hay/herbal/minty/cooling (I’m not a big fan of mint/camphor/excessive cooling). Lost the bite, still has a good presence in the mouth.
