This reminds me a lot of Golden Snail in scent and flavor, which I am quite pleased about. I believe it does get a little more astringent, but not by very much.
I’ve never had the words to describe the flavor. Maybe bready? Could this be what people mean by malty? But that doesn’t make sense to me given how many wildly different teas that taste absolutely nothing like this. I think I’ll stick with bready. It doesn’t taste anything like bread, but that’s the closest description I can think of for the flavor.
There may also be maybe a very slight minerally taste, mostly as it cools down.
Anyway, this is the kind of thing I tend to enjoy. Another bump for Yunan black teas.
