The initial dry smell is sublime - floral, orchid, just wonderful. It diminishes over 3 infusions, but never quite leaves.
1. 1.5 min.very floral with a veggie edge. Buttery smooth, thick and full.
2. 2 min.more vegetal, with the floral coming out as it cools. Not a green , grassy vegetal, more along a buttery squash one. Very pleasant.
3. 3. 2 mins. more floral again

Well worth the price if you like floral Oolongs. It is especially nice to have so many nuances. I think if you brewed it for less time per infusion, you could get maybe 6 or 7.
