The most exquisite thing about this tea is the appearance of the dry leaf. The leaves look like little furry spirals and have a pleasant faintly sweet smell. I want very much to like it, but I am not really sure I do. The tea just is not something I think that I will crave the taste of—not horrible tasting—but not something I love. I infused a fair amount of leaf in a glass gaiwan at 170° for a minute. I think this tea is a little too unforgiving and vague. Maybe I am having a bad tea day?
