This is a very nice aged tea. It seems to me that the more I drink it, the more I like it.

The wet leaves smell of old, slightly decaying wood in a damp environment, like a castle basement. Reminds me of one ambient & noise music festival called Hradby Samoty, which happens at a castle every year. I also get some chocolate and dried fruit notes coming through. The liquor is fiarly mellow and smooth. It is quite sweet, resembling prunes and cheesecake, but also has cocoa bean bitterness and little bit of mushroom broth, especially in later steeps. I get a slight cooling effect in my throat and the aftertaste is spicy I would say. There is absolutely no astringency, rather the mouthfeel is soft and mouthwatering.

I think the price these are selling for is very good and I think I will be getting some more once I finish the ones I have.

Ambient and noise music festival in a castle? Holy shit, yes. Also, tea.

I looked up Hrady Samoty and there was an artist performing this year whose alias is Teapot.

lol, I haven’t been the last few years, but it is usually a really cool festival. The number of people that come is in the range of 200 so by the end, you basically know almost everyone :D

That sounds awesome. Good amount of people. I’ve been wanting to visit the Czech Republic and the festival is after spring semester is over. Time to plot.

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.
