This tea was prepared for me in the following way. Leaves were put into a metal basket inside a large sized clay teapot, and a clear glass mug was given me. I had time for only two steepings of this tea, as I was enjoying it while meeting an old friend. The first steeping was very brief, less than thirty seconds. A sweet almost caramel flavor, with the tiniest hint of something floral like jasmine (but not jasmine). The second steeping was much richer and woodier than the first, with some of that maltiness. I wish I had the time to really enjoy a few more steepings. The buzz, very interesting. I felt at ease, very sharp, and deeply calm. Very enjoyable.
