I will say I'm not the biggest fan of wet storage cakes, and this one did have that strong wet earthy sent to it, but less than some of the other samples I have tried from them. Six months time has dried it out considerably, so I give it a go. The dry leaves do look very good, a bit dark with a very slight fuzz. They come apart easily with no breakage. The first few infusions give a wet storage aroma and flavor, but it soon dies out and turns for better. After about four brews it smooths out with a slight spicy wood flavor and some bitterness in the aftertaste. It continues pretty much the same thru out multiple infusions. It definitely coats the mouth well and gives a slight tingling sensation. The tea is still holding on to its youth but the liquor is showing some signs of aging with some orange coloration.
Everyone does have different tastes though so I recommend to try for yourself. As I like some teas others dont. Just like I favor wild game meat and my wife doesn't like anything but chicken, pork and beef.
