The main takeaways from this session are – a very strong honey aroma; tart and comforting profile; lingering sweet aftertaste; a smooth, buttery texture; and a relaxing cha qi. It’s a very good tea, and although similar to some other GABA teas I’ve had, it does seem to also have its own personality.
The dry leaves really have an overpowering (but beautiful) honey scent, complemented by butter cookies. In the preheated pot, the aroma is more fruity with notes of passion fruit and pear. Wet leaves then smell of grape leaves, spices, and garlic. The taste is pleasantly sour and fruity with flavours such as grape, melon seed, and lime.
