Quaffable enough. I don’t get much taste on the front at all, but going down pleasantly like nettles (if you’ve had nettle soup – like brighter spinach). I think it’ll take a while. I often need others here to taste a tea first because then their descriptions help me home in on the flavours to be alert for.

Brewing
I brew gongfu style – lotsa tea, brief brew, then into a sharing cup. It really changed tea for me after not quite “getting it” from western style brewing.
