Discovering Adagio teas, episode #10 (out of 12).
Wonderful aroma out of the zip bag, reminding me of old leather and wet tree bark.
After steeping the leather subsides, but there’s a strong wood barrel character, hot soil after the rain starts, maltiness, mellow pipe tobacco, raisins and Autumn leaves. Really unique and exquisite.
The taste is very mellow and it unwinds magnificently. There is no sweetness, bitterness nor astringency, just the rich and complex bouquet.
Really wonderful tea.
