I agree with ifjuly that the first couple of steepings didn’t do much for me. Just a bit too delicate for my tastes, I guess. On the third steeping, I finally got that base note that hits me in the chest in a good way. The fourth was sublime, with high/low/salty/sweet complexity firing at me, though in a more delicate way than Mandala’s milk oolong. I think I’m going to have to put this one away until I’ve developed a more sensitive palate. Right now, I prefer the more obvious pleasures of milk oolong, but who knows how long that will last.
