Nice tippy leaf exhaling a faint sweet and nutsy aroma. It gives a fine cup with sweet fruity and floral notes. There is a hint of true muscatel. The whole aromatic profile is not as intense as one could expect for such a pricey tea. It is very fresh and likely to improve after a couple of months but if someone asks me if 150 g of this tea is worthy of $191.99 I’d certainly say No! I’ve cupped this tea in several ways since I received it. I feel I was a bit hard with it. It is particularly suited for gongfu cha style preparation (no flash wash, 8 g/100 ml , 6 steepings about 20 to 120 sec). At say $80/150 g it’d be a good buy.
