Dark resin of frankincense with notes of spicy copal. Notes of ancient mid-winter feast.
Dark ancient resin with notes of copal and orange peel.
Real frankincense tree resin from Oman is pulverized and combined with natural makko to create an incense that is structurally simple, but aromatically complex. This style of incense is very clean and clear like many natural Japanese incense, but the frankincense material causes a transformation that is very deepening. The notes of deep, spicy copal are lovely, and are nothing like the smoky, harsh, and overheated low-quality frankincense you might have smelled in a church.
If you were familiar with the previous Totem Frankincense, this Copal Frankincense is less sweet, more spicy. Less bright, more dark. Definitely interesting.
I encourage experimentation with incense and tea pairing, but I think that this Frankincense goes well with any of the fragrant oolongs like Gui Fei or Wen Shan Bao Zhong.
15g incense ~ 46x 14cm sticks. Approximate burn time of one stick ~ 30 minutes.
