Got this when I was out of town in a place with barely any good tea available. It was pretty good, but maybe it was due to my weekend long lacking of connoisseur grade teas. Had this after a big breakfast and it was brewed in an insulated paper cup with an espresso steamer. After a solid 4 minute steep I decided based on smell that it was ready. Has a smooth finish and very sweet smells. I would like to try this loose leaf next time.
