I hesitate to review this tea, given that my palate and/or my ability to articulate how tea tastes lags so far behind the other contributors. But I bought a modest quantity of this the last time it became available and found that it tasted primarily of mushrooms. You wouldn’t think that this would be particularly alluring (in a tea, that is, I like to eat mushrooms). Yet now that I’ve used it all, I find often find myself craving it — in vain, since it’s only ever available in limited quantities. It’s a lovely darkish golden brown color and the pale brown spindly leaves are cool-looking, but I just miss that mushroomy flavor. I steeped it for about 1 minute, and got 3 good infusions out of each batch.
