The dry leaf of this tea has a powerful aroma. Stronger than anything I’ve had on hand in a good long while. Oddly, the smell is all Yunnan golden. Deeply sweet, like roasted figs.
The cup isn’t nearly as bold on a short steep but there’s a very pleasant round, full presence of the tea from start to finish.
I don’t have nearly as much astringency as I did from this tea the other day. Maybe I did over-cook it a bit, then?
