At the beginning, very nutty and floral-vegetable with slight herbal notes, the aromas transform into a pleasant, freshly bitter-sweet blend with subtle fruitiness. Slightly light body and rather coarse in the processing but altogether very tasty and multi-faceted.

Super heavy and full-bodied with an very spicy sweetness and subliminal bitterness which numbs the tongue. Wet-storage character but still a super strong tea and a very relaxed qi.
