Smokey without being too aggressive. If you are wondering in which way it is “smokey” i would say BBQ. And it is not bad, even it may sound a little bit strange. The tea is full of flavour and aroma even if less persistent in mouth than i expected. Little bitterness but not unpleasent. After several infusion, around tenth, smoke and dark character is less present, but it is still interesting ’cause I had some little sour sweetness in my throat, and some green note in my nose. I do not consider this a top tea just because it is not very persistent after swallow, and latest brews are a little astringent.
