2016 W2T Treachery

2015 W2T Last Thoughts

July 29, 2016. 5g/70ml gaiwan. [7.8] Significantly better than the 2016 W2T LT which was tasted just previously.  Bigger aroma, better body effects, but very similar in almost all respects....

2016 W2T Tuhao as F*ck

5g/70ml gaiwan [5.0] Lots of silvery tips visible among the dark green-black leaves. Fruity sweet aroma on the dry leaf.  No smoke discernible on the warmed damp leaf. An unmistakable...

2016 W2T Tyler

July 29, 2016 5g gaiwan, [5.5] Much more subdued experience this time around.  Tasted against the poundcake 2016 and the latter was bigger and pushed Tyler out of the way....
