'Ben-Shan' is a trigger word for me for a tea is going to be worth paying attention to. Along with the words 'Anxi' and 'Fujian' I am most certainly clearing my palate, my tea table and my mind while prepping some fresh boiling water. This tea goes through all kinds of delightful changes. The tea in the bag smells woodsy and nutty. Steaming in the warmed dry cup it is heavily floral and the steeps themselves are both of those with deep roasted notes to boot. It's goddamned beautiful is what it is.
