Mellow, smooth. leaves are nicely roasted, not big but uniform. Imparts that calming sensation and lasting sweetness. Steeped six times then dumped leaves out of the gaiwan and into a pot to simmer for fifteen minutes. The liquor turned dark and sweetened further with an added depth of flavor. I might boil a bit longer next time to see how far I can push it.
