A very delicate tea and left oversteeped will leave a deep astringent taste that will transition to a honey dew like note on your palate. Definitely grassy, smells amazing. The best smelling leaves I’ve encountered in my past 4 years of drinking loose leaf tea. Smell wise them reminds me of hot cross buns during easter or even a cinnamon type bread. I think all white tea drinkers should give MM a chance and with enough interaction and play with water, leaves and heat would produce a delicately complex smokey sugared tea.
Leaves are picked on time as they are absolutely beautiful to behold. It appears to my amateur eyes that they are up there with the highest grade white tea. Would definitely buy again and have in my shelf on a rainy day or when I need a clean tasting tea.
