About the tea – The dry leaf consists of medium sized semi- pearl, twisted leaves, which expand and unfurl into gorgeous tea leaves. The fragrance of the dried tea is earthy and comforting.
Infused tea – The tea cups out a champagne color liquor that has malty, nuanced and tannic aroma, like a fine second flush. The texture is smooth and mellow, with lighter mouthfeel and coppery after taste. The tea is medium-bodied with a moderate amount of astringency.
Infusion – Infuse the leaves for four to five minutes with 95 – 100 C water. You will get at least three infusions out of this tea. Each of the three steeps I had, was bright, engaging, perfectly smooth and well balanced.
