Lightly toasted, sweet, very pleasant aftertaste. I’m wondering if the leaves having a few months to rest has helped with some of the unpleasantness experienced by the previous reviewer. The smell of the steeped leaves do still smell a bit like burnt food… or at least I can see how that description came to mind, lol.
I’m not using a lot of leaf because while I brought a teapot with me I’m not at home so I’m having to opt for less leaf, longer steep and that probably has a big effect on taste.
Personally enjoying this first experience from Taiwan Sourcing. Sweet upfront with this slowly blossoming floral and sweet potato aftertaste. The other thing that really, really stands out from the very first sip is how creamy this tea is. Very smooth, thick mouth-feel.
