It's all about

substance. This is a tea with weight in the cup and mouth. It boasts a fleshy, almost chewy texture that, combined with an underlying mushroom broth umami, almost gives the impression of eating a hearty mountain vegetable dish. This tea also steeps and steeps and steeps, and packs some heavy head feels!
