Dark, fishy, has sort of pu-erh taste to it, honestly. If I didn’t know better I may mistake it for one.

Very earthy, a tiny touch of floral but I can’t grasp what flower(s)…

Medium length finish that stays mostly as a coated feeling of flavor on the top of the tongue. Bit on the inside of the lips, too.

Definitely very earthy… it tastes similar to a clay pot or cup.

Texture is fairly light.

Not a huge amount to say. It’s about middling-decent, not outstanding in either a bad or good way.

I used close to 1.5 tsp and let steep for five minutes. Because it came out so strong, it was just passable for me but, when I steeped it a second time (very rarely steep Ceylon teas), it was terrific and would easily score 8 out of 10. My recommendation for the first cup is to only use one teaspoon and steep no more than 4,5 minutes.
