Fragrant indeed! I keep on expecting astringency and it’s just not there. I wish more purportedly fragrant teas were like this. There is some perfume yes, but the body is so soft, not all high and buzzing. This is a really lovely cup, not a type I would generally seek out, but I could drink this and I shall.
Second infusion- well there’s the bite, phooey. Not like this tea is available outside the set. Oh well, nice first run. Update: better as it mellows, not so much fragrant anymore, but spicy and nutty particularly black pepper and almond. Meh.
