Another delicious tea from Jun Chiyabari! This one hits all the right spots for me as far as Himalayan FF teas go. It is complex and very well balanced with strong flavours lingering for a long time and a silky, thick liquor that induces a numbing, tingling sensation in the mouth.

Daylon R Thomas and eastkyteaguy have analyzed this one in great details, so my notes will mostly repeat theirs with an emphasis on the ones that seemed the most pronounced in this particular session of mine.

Starting with the aromas, I would pick out butter, fennel, and grass from the dry leaf bouquet. wet leaf smell is incredibly floral, reminiscent of lily flowers and thyme. The taste is very crisp and has notes of orange blossom, celery, green pepper, pine, and a lingering lemon flavour, complemented by nutmeg, apricot, and butter in the aftertaste.

Flavors: Apricot, Butter, Celery, Fennel, Floral, Flowers, Grass, Green Bell Peppers, Lemon, Nutmeg, Orange Blossom, Pine, Tangy, Thick, Thyme

I had been drinking Japanese green tea for a while before discovering the world of tea in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
