Straightforward tobacco flavor but very good texture and finish. 2nd steep: Some dark spice in the nose. Tobacco, wood, and tar flavors, with hints of bitterness. Astringent in the finish. Good body. 3rd: The rich texture is the best part of this tea. Dark flavors, and rich finish. Pretty good cha qi. Several more good steeps.
I found the tea very interesting but a bit too dark for me. I would recommend it on an absolute basis, but I’m not sure it is a particularly good value at the price.
