I write this in commemoration of the first time I'm experiencing 茶气, if it indeed is real.
It's actually kind of weird. This is the last batch of Rou Gui that I had, and frankly I didn't like how it initially smelled and taste as the roast taste was overwhelming. But woah the 回感 (aftertaste) is strong this time, its mildly sweet and pleasantly warming. As if I swallowed very viscose air (if thats a thing). It's been 20 mins and I still clearly feel it lingering at the back of my mouth, and permeating the rest of my body. Strange feeling.
Here's a discussion about what 茶气 is.
