Rinse smelled a bit fishy, so it probably could age for a while longer.

First infusion:
Fishy smell is gone. Lovely sweet aroma, smooth comforting taste. Don’t know how to describe this, but it’s almost like the best possible hot water, neutral taste but full-bodied and goes with everything. I’m eating it with fruit for breakfast and it pairs fine, doesn’t overwhelm the mild dragonfruit. Tastes good with milk too.

Second infusion:
Hmm, this infusion is not so sweet and I’m getting a bit more of that “plain water” taste, maybe due to very light mellow flavour and a slight astringency on the tongue (like when you drink too much warm water). Better than the first time I tried this (used too much leaf), but I probably won’t buy the full cake.

Increasing rating to 82.
