I really enjoyed this tea. Lots of fruity flavors in the early-mid steeps. Possibly peach, though at times I thought it might have been like pear too. Fruitiness is accompanied by a creamy texture and sweet vanilla-like finish. After the fruit flavors fade, a sort of mineral flavor takes over for them. This flavor is extremely smooth, and if one uses their imagination, almost comes across as a more muted fruit flavor. I really liked this tea, but do have a bit of trouble coming up with descriptions for the flavors. The roast on this tea was apparent in the aroma, but I did not pick up on it at all in the flavor of the tea. I think it more added to the great overall sweetness of this tea. I previously tried with water at 190 degrees, but felt like I wasn’t getting nearly all this tea had to offer. Doing this session at 205 degrees confirmed this suspicion, and I will try with boiled water next time.
