There is so much going on with this tea. In the aroma, in the liquid, a bit of buttered popcorn from the movie theatre along with some interesting woody notes. Very slight mahogany notes. But the wet leaf is very different, somewhat mineral at first. Then it changes to an almost sugary-sweet with a refreshing feeling in your nostrils after. Kind of reminds me of lychee. My first steep was probably a better amount of time. More fruity, stone fruit and lychee notes shined through. But steeped longer you find rich wood notes with the fruit tones subdued in the background. Very minimal astringency. It is a good tea but I think it bounces aroudn in flavor too much. My brain can’t handle it. ^^;

Tea is a way of life. The more you drink tea, the more you learn about tea. I’m mostly a purist but also a bit of a tea adventurist. If there is a new tea or brand to be discovered I will try it out. I love every type save for dark teas which I just can’t seem to take a fancy to. The only ones I usually refuse to try are green tea and citrus mixes. Just nope.
