A very fine aged tea. There is a consistent mouthfeel that persists well after my cup is empty. The energy overflows steep after steep, my head races back and forth as my body cools to a soft chill.
The main taste of this tea is somewhere in the middle of astringency and bitter, but not either one more than the other. Grass, mild smoke, tobacco flavors stand out to me as the dominant flavors. It almost tastes like a burnt flower would, a little charred but full of beauty and underlying fruitiness.
This is stronger tea in almost every facet of it. The liquor is browner than most teas this age. The thick liquor leads for a superb mouth buzzing effect. Lastly, the feeling behind the tea is an energetic and clear headed one.
