I rinsed this – and the drank it. Creamy, with both a hint of bitterness and sweetness.
The wet leaf smells overwhelmingly of citrus. Hopefully this isn’t too bitter!

Creamy, citrus, thick. Aftertaste was citrus and floral. There was some drying in one of the early steeps. Sourness was present in the 2nd to last steep. The last steep made my teeth hurt!
I liked this tea. Consistent creamy and citrus notes. I’ll just remember not to push it so hard at the end. No real bitterness that I could taste.
