Wet leaves: earthy, light fermentation, fruity like berries.
2x medium rinses
Medium steep: I taste/smell; light
—> cream, milk. Medium -→ fruit (unknown), earth/fermentation, camphor, mushrooms.
Heavy steep: I taste/smell; light —> milk, cream, fruit (unknown). Medium -→ camphor, earth/fermentation, mushrooms, mud. (I accidentally over steeped this steep this time around, but it turned out not as bad as I thought it would… Just thought id let you know)
All in all, this is is a nice tea. the aroma, the taste, the cha qi… Lovely. So I rate a 90.
