Given the detailed description of this tea I had rather high expectations and was not disappointed. There are so many layers in this tea which transform as the tea cools adding even more depth. I could detect floral sweet notes that were followed by a earth, smokey and slightly astringent finish. I agree that this is indeed a strong leaf and recommend dropping to 1 teaspoon in order to truly appreciate all of the wonderful layers this tea has to offer.
