I found initial flavors quite pleasing, similar to what other folks have commented on hay and toffee. No somatic feeling during or after whatsoever. Later steepings are just a bit too mellow for me to appreciate; the overall experience has a tendency to tapper off about 6th-7th steeping…sweetness is still there but steadily becomes not as pronounced -to be expected on teas of lower quality.
Which brings me to the “should order/should not order” conversation… if given the chance to re-do my last Tea Urchin order I would save my money by not ordering this tea (sample) and put the money towards a sample of higher quality. Additionally, I now find this a truism: save the lower quality stuff for a vendor whose specialization is more lower to mid quality, like Yunnan Sourcing.
Acquired 30g sample from Teaurchin.com for $6 USD, March 2015.
