This tea has a very nice aroma. The initial taste is something like toast, then some grass flavors, and a very satisfying sweet finish that lingers for a long time. I tried it gong fu style initially, but I enjoy this tea more ‘western style.’ The first and second steeps (165ish degrees, 3 min) were both wonderful. I’m on the third steep, and the toasty overtones are less pronounced, but the lingering aftertaste is still very present. Definitely a great value!
