It's all about

the long-lasting aftertaste and head feels. The tea liquor in the mouth tastes medicinal, like a slightly bitter poultice of herbs, roots, and wood. But swallow, and wait, and slowly a sweetness like that in turnips or carrots unfurls. I felt a strong burst of energy quickly after drinking, but it eventually subsided and left only a sense of being grounded, calm.
