The smell of the brick is beautiful. Gives me strong hints of strawberry. Brewed this gongfu style starting at 30 secs and adding 15-30 each steep.
1st & 2nd Steep: These steeps give a smooth feel with no astringency at all. The flavors remind me of vanilla and berries.
3rd & 4th Steep: The vanilla becomes toned down a bit and a more floral taste appears. Still super smooth.
5th Steep & beyond: Floral taste gets stronger but the sweetness stays around somewhat. A slight astringency sets in as you get deeper.
This is absolutely one of my favorite teas and I can’t recommend it enough.
Flavors: Floral, Smooth, Strawberry, Vanilla
