This tea is rich and smokey. Sweet for a second then pleasantly bitter, with an astringency that coats the mouth without feeling to dry. It tasted earthy, damp and woody. Very smooth. It is a lovely autumn orange color when brewed. Brewed gong fu style, 5 grams in a 60ml gaiwan. Ten second wash, 1st infusion 20 seconds, 2nd infusion 35-30 seconds, etc. Lost track of how many infusions I did because the flavor continued to intrigue me after many steepings!

Flavors: Astringent, Autumn Leaf Pile, Decayed wood, Moss, Mushrooms, Smooth, Sweet, Wet Earth

I am a relatively new tea drinker, although my time as a barista and also my time as a wino gave me some critical sipping experience . . . I find this to be a wonderful way of exploring a whole new world of tastes and senses!
