This tea for me is relatively plain. It is not robust in flavor; however, after savoring, this tea began to unfold in complexity (and definitely began to grow on me). As the description says, there is a certain truffle aroma to it. This tea is very low in astringency and briskness. It has a light body and lingers on the palate pleasantly with a certain dampness, as opposed to a dryness you may perceive with an umami type. The liquor is a bright orange and the leaves are tightly rolled with a golden brown color and, after steeping, unfurl to a larger leaf (similar to what I would see in an oolong).
