This tea smells pleasantly fungal and like straw, like damp autumn leaves and moist earth. The flavour is very soft and smooth and it never gets bitter or sour. I have, in the past, forgotten about it and left it to steep for more than five, maybe even ten minutes, and it's still been smooth. Even when it's strong, though, it seems slightly thin to me which feels at odds with the earthiness of the aroma.

As an aside, I often get the feeling that my ratings are on the low side. On one hand I want to be as honest and accurate as possible, and I take earlier ratings into account when rating a new tea. On the other hand, I don't want to be too harsh on perfectly good teas...
I'm giving this one a relatively low rating because I don't enjoy it as much as other teas, but it is by no means a bad tea.
