SuperbExcellentGood Value

The aroma of the loose leaves is a mix of roasted nuts, honey, and sesame seeds. It reminds of sesame honey candy and is quite delicious smelling. Brewing the leaves brings out vegetal qualities and sharp notes of fruit and osmanthus flowers. The liquid without the leaves have a roasted nuts and lettuce aroma.

The first steeping creamy with an almost oily mouthfeel with strong floral notes that fade to roasted notes and sorrel and finally a honey aftertaste.

The second steep has a dryer mouth feel with heavy osmanthus notes and roasted notes. The taste in intense and I was able to get another steeping from this tea. I really enjoyed how complex this teas flavors are.
