I still find this tea to have one of the best price/quality ratios on the market. It’s smooth, pungent and balanced with a good huigan and longevity (one can easily get 200ml/g), staying interesting until the end of the session. Compared to my earlier note, it hasn’t changed much. The aroma is a bit more nutty now, with a bunt onion like scent. On the other hand, the taste is slightly more woody and maybe just a touch sweeter too.

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.
