Not sure how to express my liking for this tea !
The sample I have is not to tightly pressed .. There is a good smell to the dry leaf , the wet leaf even more so.
It smells slightly medicinal , which I like. The tast is different to other teas I have had. There is some astringency , but not too much. Chi ? All I can say is it results in a relaxed feeling all over.. Give it a try , even if only a sample !
I love this , However it may not be to everyones taste..
Has a very damp leaf , forest smell and tast if steeping s are not very short . That said it is great to play with the timings and Temp to get the tast you like. Nice thick mouth feel and for me, calming. I enjoy this after a heavy meal.. At least give it a go !
