To my mind, these are not pinheads, which I think are supposed to be smaller than regular gunpowder tea, as they are pretty good sized. I brewed it for about a minute and found it to be floral and vegetal, but also seemed to carry some sesame seed in it. The second infusion was for 1.5 minutes and smelled more floral, which is how it tasted, but with quite a sharp edge to it. I found it pleasant, but not exciting.
