A nice little cake. Fairly loose compression, tiny leaves (I mean really tiny). After a 20s rinse, the tea broke open FAST! I did 5-10s steeps, but could have gone with 2s the tea brewed so fast. Dark, dark color with a cocoa, earthy, leathery, raisin flavor. Being such a fine grade leaf the tea steeped out in 5-6 steepings, but they were delicious! A good one for a daily drinker.
