I didn’t like the first steep of this tea at all. It seemed very astringent and almost a bit salty (I did rinse the tea before the first steep). But on the second through sixth steeps, it was great. The taste seems kind of toasty and a bit nutty. The flavor was full, even after so many steeps. I probably could have gotten even more steeps out of it, but wanted to start drinking something else for the evening. Considering I normally only drink flavored teas, I really enjoyed this one.
