Had this one in my gaiwan and it didn’t disappoint as this is my first try of this tea in a very long time. Sweet astringency accompanied by a soft bitter aftertaste prevails after each sip.

Strong mouthfeel with a medium qi makes this tea a pleasant drink. It’s easy to drink and reminds me of some of the first Chinese green teas I have tried so many years ago.

Very consistent from steep-to-steep. The astringency falls off after about the 5th steep and leaves the sweetness and slight bitter after taste to satisfy the drinker. The liquor gets thicker in later infusions as this tea becomes a very drinkable treat.

The taste becomes a woody and leafy combination.

As far as the energy level of this tea goes; I got a wave of heat in the first steep or two, but after that there is little sign of increased energy which is probably the only downfall for this tea (due to the fact that I enjoy drinking tea that can fuel rockets).
