I had a near perfect cup of this tea today. It was slightly sweet with a fruity taste. Then a roasted taste kind of like fresh baked pizza crust. There was a lingering aftertaste that was smooth and very satisfying and stayed in the back of my throat for a minute or two. I think its best to brew this in a yixing pot with alot of leaf and short steeps. I don’t seem to notice the floral character that Rishi claims, which is fine since I don’t usually like floral teas.
