The dried tea leaves smell like autumn. A mixture of turning leaves and sweet apple cider. The wet leaves smell like tobacco and damp earth. I’m impressed by the full, silky mouth feel of this tea. It doesn’t have much of the characteristic bitterness of other Ban Zhang teas. It’s mostly sweet, mildly fruity, a bit of leathery notes mixed in with a crisp clean finish. This tea stands up to many steeps and seems to get sweeter as it goes. Lovely tea, I will buy it again!
