Very mild, very pleasant. This 13 year old ripe tuo is not complex nor strong. After finding myself steeping this tea and replacing the spent leaves with fresh chunks after many infusions I felt as if I may finish the tuo in one sitting. I saved some tea for future sessions throughout the week and I look forward to drinking this easily approachable tea. Tastes like dirt, goes down as more easily than any tea I’ve tried, and relaxes me. Worth it to buy in bulk, which I may do.
