The dry leaves consists of long dark green tendrils. These leaves carry the tantalizing aroma of dried apricot and tobacco. I placed these lengthy beauties in my yixing and gave them a shake. A heavy smoky aroma of oak filled my tea room. I began to brew right away. The steeped leaves smelled of leather and wild greens. I was able to pull a great many steepings out of my yixing this tea session. This tea gives off the flavor of smooth smoke with a light vegetal tone. The qi from this brew is intense. it peaks quickly and hits hard, but then smooths out to a peaceful relaxation. This is one of my staples within my tea cupboard, and I am sorry to see the last of it go. I will definitely be purchasing more.
