Price: £27.34 ($43.12) (400g cake
Summary: This starts of light before getting quite intense. Herbal and lemony fruitiness, some throat rhyme
8 grams (pried from the bottom slice at the edge).
This is my first raw cake :)
Dry: Dark brown with white’ish leaves, medium/high compression. Aroma is bright sour lemons.
Wet: Fresh green, dark fruits, complex aroma. Full leaves and stems.
5s – Light orange. Sweet sip with medium body, which appears to give some throat rhyme. It is pleasant and not simple or overly complex, but somewhere in between. No smoke or bitterness detected.
10s – Medium orange. Has some thickness in the mouth, and on the swallow I feel some oil from the leaves go down a little time afterwards. Some bitterness.
15s – Light orange. It has some herbal to it and some bright lemons notes that really stood out, and appeared quite randomly. This is not particularly smooth, but it is interesting to drink.
20s – Light orange. Judging by the strength of this tea, I would say it would go another 5 steeps at least. A subsequent session confirmed this.
