I like this tea, at least when I give it a good week or so between tastings. I'm not sure why I get sick of it, but I do. I think it's the leaf-pile scent that remains after my nose gets used to the sweet and fruity aromas.

With that confession off my chest, let me stress that this is a quality tea with a lots of complex flavor that somehow doesn't get lost even though there's this up-front sort of astringency. Instead of a dry-mouthed tannin taste, what lingers is very pleasant. If it reads like I can't write about this tea without mixing up the pleasant and unpleasant, that's about right. What matters is that the tea never fails to engage, and I keep coming back to relive the experience.

Oh, I also tend to start out drinking this without any sweetener. By the time I finish the cup I usually add a bit. It's more enjoyable with it, but it's so interesting without.
