A very powerful tea. If you brew this with >5g/100mL with flash steeping you’re in for a bitter and sour brew – which for me was enjoyable! Underneath the bitterness and astringency is a lot of aroma, with tonnes of fruit and floral notes, very complex and enjoyable. The aroma notes come through in a strong sweet and sour aftertaste that lingers and lingers. Underpinning all of this is a full body, a little oily and some mineral notes. The tea will go on and on, getting slowly but surely sweeter and fruitier as time passes.
Finally the qi, strong and warm, I felt like I was wrapped in cotton wool, high as a kite and happy as Larry :)
A tea that can be enjoyable now, if you’re into this sort of thing, or I think a worthy ageing investment :)
