In May 2020, this tea has mellowed (2013 pick), and the smokiness, tobacco flavor, and pleasant bitterness are more integrated than previously. Aroma in first cup is of orange and tobacco, with a touch of green vegetable, and it tastes much more seamless than it did as reflected in my previous note 5 years ago. The smokiness is pleasant and I can sense it in my sinuses. Quite interesting and it tastes pretty good. It does have a long, smoky aftertaste which is pleasant.
