It's all about

herbal midtone aromas set against a pleasantly waxy (oily but drying) texture. The slightest bit of a fruit note appears in the aftertaste. In overall profile this tea is reminiscent of some 2019 Bulang area sheng puer I’ve tried recently. But of course, with a name like “Altered State” most of you are here less for the tasting notes, more for the statement about state altering: I can’t say I noticed anything out of the ordinary after following my standard steeping procedure, but your mileage may vary!
