Thank you Teavivre for this great sample!
Pure chocolate-y goodness! Malty, thick and smooth, along with a tiny amount of good astringency.
The recommended time to steep was 1-2 minutes, of which I choose to go a little longer. The liquid was still much tamer than a bolder Assam, and had a medium brown appearance.
These nice sized pearls were delightful to watch unfurl. They seemed more to explode in slow motion, than unwind. There is a ton of great looking leaves in each of these balls.
The tea is definitely quality enough to steep a couple different times. The second steeping was very pleasing as well!
