I like this tea. A lot. It’s a tea that has a lot going on, complex flavors but all intertwining. The flavors kind of pop in your mouth, just when you think you know what your tasting, some other flavor reveals itself.
There are not many teas of this type out there that has this kind of quality, it does have floral tones, a wee bit astringent, an almost nutty flavor and a sweet aftertaste.
I gave it a 50 s. steep time and used one teaspoon for every six ounces.
I have bought this tea twice and the next time I buy it, it will probably be a 2011 pick.
Norbu is a very attentive company and answers all questions quickly.

I like a wide variety of teas and drink different types on a daily basis. I have many teapots I need to feed and to feel. Tea is tactile as well as aromatic. I think I drink matcha just to wrap my hands around a beautiful studio pottery cup.
