Another great review by Jason Walker of Walker Tea Review. Thanks, Jason, for putting in the time to taste our teas.
Smells like it’s been in the smokehouse, it’s a bit meaty, salty, smoky, all fused into one—it’s a pleasant smell [talking about the leaves]. Nice smooth pour. Good deep amber/dark honey colour. [Tasting now] Think of early stages of lapsong souchong—there’s still some smokiness coming out [sounds great for cooking!]. Texture-wise, it’s got a smooth, silken aspect to it, a gummy sweetness. 86/100
