I was excited to try this one because it seemed like a heartier version of a tea bag via bamboo leaf. The flavor was more than I anticipated. The bamboo was a little overwhelming, and there were some nice charcoal accents, but the texture of the tea resembled a darker tea, maybe a shou, than the usual black tea. I did get some sweet potato and savory notes amidst a whole lot of malt, but it just tasted off and musty. I was only able to do about three cups in very short western steeps of 2 min, 3 min, 5 min and was not a fan. Someone more accustomed to this style of tea might know what they are doing.
