In the bag, the tea smells like predominantly like buttered nuts, tumbled in a light date-fruit sweetness, tumbled with fresh cut grass. The dry tea has a metallic and iodine top note, that is strong, but not obnoxious. In the cup the smooth pale liquor has hints of umami and roasted vegetables, along with subtle grass and a hint of fennel in its aftertaste. A very nice oolong.
