Dry leaf is small, twisted, mostly matte black leaf. Pretty uniform leaf size. There are a few odd dark brown leaves thrown in, and a few untwisted partial leaves. I assume this is due to the “wild” nature of the product. Steamed aroma is unremarkable. The gaiwan aroma (post first brew) is also unremarkable. Maybe a bit of stone fruit, but that’s being generous.

Initial taste is a cacophony of fruits. It’s syrupy like fruit punch mix. Important to note, there is no chemical, or artificial taste. The tea soup is viscous. It feels oil like on the tongue. Taste develops into an intense sugarcane, fruity sweetness There’s also a bit of citrus taste in the finish. More shaddock, than, say, lemon. This citrus flavor also comes through on the lips. The finish starts off sweet. That sweetness is joined by an undertone of citrus, and a cool sensation towards the back of the mouth.

Longer steeps don’t seem to change the flavour much.
