Taste is, well, essentially Bai Mu Dan.
Notes of vegetation, chestnut, honey, and herbs, with a slight tang developing later on.
Flavor notes: Vegetation, earth, chestnut, honey, thyme, and flowers.
Upon looking inside of my brewing vessel, I notice that the cake is decompressing and it appears that this tea cake is made from broken leaf material, rather than whole leaves.
