I got this in the vintage sample pack from Bana. I’ve now had two session with it. The tea can get a bitter edge if over steeped, but once you pull back it is very nice. I tend to like strong flavors so I seem to push right up to that edge.

I found 4.3 grams with about 3oz of water made the better steeps, but keep the first few steeps short 20 secs or shorter. The color is a nice clear orange/peach and darkens to redder tint about the 3rd infusion. It lingers on the tongue, with a hint of astringency still. The taste is woody musk.

The aroma is a fairly mild fruity musk early but then fades quickly.
