Another sample from Roswell Strange, I am very glad to have tried this high end shou blend. It’s got a lot of complexity and a thick buttery mouthfeel. I also found it to be very warming throughout the body and it’s effect on the mind to be quite attention-focusing.

The aromas are sweet with dominant notes of vanilla, cream, and black raspberry. Taste is sweet, mineral, herbaceous, and woody relative to the average shou. I wrote down that the flavour reminds me of sawdust, dry earth, walnuts, gin, caramel, and tree bark.

There is a strong huigan and the aftertaste is quite cooling and fragrant. I also noticed additional hints of bananas and soy sauce.

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.
