Mandarin – Humboldt County
This has a slightly concentrated Mandarin aroma, almost a dried orange, so it’s not as bright, sweet, and acidic as a fresh orange. There are some musky and sweet notes, like Earl Grey and wicker. This batch has aged some.
Small, tight, light green buds with red hairs. Very spongy. Over trimmed (this also impacts the aroma) but dense trichome coverage inside. Clear, full trichome heads.
The dry hit is kind of orange pixie stix, just not as sweet. On the tail I almost get a Geranium, but barely. Smooth like melted butter!
I am thoroughly enjoying Mandarin! The flavor is right and I get all kinds of productive when I smoke it. It’s not buzzy or racy, but it gives me the focus to work on creative projects. Great jar appeal, burns slow and evenly, and leaves a light white ash. What a wonderful representation of Humboldt sungrown flower!
