Originally I thought this tea was bland, but I realize now that I just wasn’t using enough leaf. The description matches the tea exactly. Faintly smokey with a delicate fruity note that reminds me of dried apricots.
The beautiful bold leaves have a faint note of tobacco and yield a cup with a clean green tea flavor. Similar to a Yunnan green tea, this is a tea with a smooth vegetal character and delicate fruity notes.
