Very fine fannings; dry leaf has little aroma.

Upton recommends 1-3 minutes, I prefer steeping only 30-45 seconds, and using a bit more leaf than recommended, as it brings out the interesting qualities of the aroma while keeping the tea smoother and milder.

Brewing like this produces a very smooth and clean tea. Clear taste: little astringency or bitterness, a mild, but clean sourness, medium body. Aroma strongly suggests fennel or anise, more fennel. There are also tones of wintergreen, and rice, especially in the finish. Slightly reminiscent of a high-grown Ceylon, but with less edge and a more malty character.

Surprising quality for fannings.
