The dry leaf smells of nutmeg and muscatel. The wet leaf smell is much harder to identify for me, but it is quite fruity with some rum and sandalwood note to it. I find the liquor to have slightly milky smell too. The taste is super smooth and bright, with a nice bite thanks to the astringency in the finish. It’s a mix of fruity and floral notes with hints of alcohol and conifer trees. The sour parts of the taste linger longer and join the floral aromatics and astringency for a very nice long lasting aftertaste with some huigan too! Later steeps also have a considerable lager-like bitterness. The mouthfeel is milky and coating and the qi is very pleasant and calming.

I have been a fan of green tea for a while and I started exploring other kinds of tea in greater depth only in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
