Too strong, TOO STRONG! I cracked this one open blind, totally forgot it’s supposed to be bitter smoky, shoulda used way less leaf. It’s also packed very tightly, so misjudged the amount (and nearly stabbed myself a dozen times).

Tasting notes are obfuscated by the incredible dryness in my mouth. But loving the smells throughout the session. I’ll revisit this one shortly enough anyway.

Similar caffeine effect to coffee, sans jitters. Feeling kinda groovy and wanting to dance.

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.
