The smell of the dry tea is very strong and interesting, like a black tea. Somewhat like keemun, but with no smoky or roasty aspect. The leaves are beautiful, long and twisted with lots of white tips. Same color profile as Bai Hao, but with less rich brown.

Steeping #1 (45s @ 175F/79C)
Toasty golden brown liquor. Smells like a rock oolong. Very nutty and pleasant. Somewhat two-dimensional in flavor, and not very lingering, but very drinkable and nice.

Steeping #2 (45s @ 175F/79C)
Darker golden brown liquor, like chestnut wood. The aroma is almost sweet, and less nutty.

The flavor is uncannily like roasted nuts. No smokiness, but there is also an enjoyable and slight astringency and some sweetness, which is interesting. The very first moment of the sip is strongest, with a very slight and toasty aftertaste. I’m not going to invest in a third steeping, but it’s a nice tea.
