The 3 minute infusion really brings out some the complex flavour in this tea. I still detect the chamomile subtle sweetness. There is also a sweet grassy tone. Abstractly, I would describe the overal flavour as brassy and shiny. It has both a thin (on the tip of the tongue) and thick mouthfeel (still provides an umami savoury sensation).

Very soft flavour. Black tea flavour is bordering on astringent but the flavour is too faint to tell. Berry flavour is quite mild- almost just an aroma. Immediate aftertaste mouth-feel is soft, light and creamy.

Pu-erh flavour comes out a bit more with the longer infusion time. I may want to try extending the infusion time further next time.

Oolong flavour is not as robust as I would like it- results in a rather thin-tasting brew. I may try using a higher concentration of dry leaf next time.
Thank you to Sil who shared this with me!

Creeping astringency but not very pronounced. Black and green tea flavours are blended nicely. A more pronounced black tea taste would go better with the lighter strawberry flavour. Overall, a bit thin tasting and dilute.

This is a totally different tea to me than what we had at the tea festival…

I completely agree! It was so flavourful- glad that it isn’t just me who noticed it.
