This is a comforting and balanced tea with hints of greatness. It lasts for a good 12 infusions at 5g in a 100ml gaiwan. Despite being almost 3 years old now, it feels very fresh and zesty.
The aroma is sweet, nutty and comforting with a distinctive cooling floral character, a bit like lilacs. The taste is somehow fresh with being vegetal at all. It has a mild floral sweetness and peatiness. There are also notes of grapevine, citrus, plant roots and limestone. I also like the silky texture and heady qi. The aftertaste is warming and protracted with notes of butter, spices, saffron and nectar.
