Great complexity. Some wet pile in the first steeping, like seafood broth, in the most pleasant way. Then sweetness like blackcurrant juice. Next a cocoa bitterness. Oily but not thick. Wet leaf reminds me of stale popped corn and sawdust. Flavors let up after eight steepings while the aftertaste starts to shine, which I’d describe as a mineral fruitiness that tingles the chest.

Nice revitalizing energy. Had a terrible mental health day and I found solace in this tea.

Hello! My name is Mateusz, or Mat for short. Started brewing gong fu style in January 2021. This is mostly for logging purposes; don’t expect fancy reviews as I’m not great at picking up every note and hint and I’m not too picky anyway.

Happy to exchange tea samples! I haven’t been great at updating my cupboard but feel free to ask about the teas that I log on here.
