This is another of those difficult-to-brew teas: it is very easy to make it either bland and boring or over-strong and harsh.

When I get it right it is with a moderately-heaped teaspoon to the mug or three such to the pot, and brewed for three minutes.

It has plenty of the proper generic tea taste with the tiniest touch of ‘firmness’ or ‘hardness’ to it – I don’t mean anything like staleness; plus it has a touch of pear (imagine a pear nicely in the middle between the quite sweet ones and the quite dry ones), plus the tiniest touches of toffee and a ‘brightness’ – difficult to describe this last but it’s slightly reminiscent of the ‘bite’ you get from sparkling wines – as I said, it’s just the tiniest touch.

Not a big favourite but it is quite pleasant.

Will review again when I have another cup. The first time I tried it, I made a pot and it turned out quite well. A pleasant tea, possibly for an afternoon, very subtle flavours. The second time was with a ball infuser in a cup – I tried it after steeping about 3mins and it didnt seem ready, when I tried it again – possibly a little late 4.30-5 it had turned completely on me and was overly bitter.

Maybe when I get more proficient at exact steeping I will have another go!
