Opens very slowly, and never quite completely in my brewing equipment. A mild tea, with some complexity developing during later (7+) steeps. Has a ‘dusty,’ aged taste, but nothing overwhelming. Pleasant – but for me, not enough so to be worth the relatively high price. Brewed in zi ni, it’s somewhat reminiscent of the (much less expensive) 2015 Gao Jia Shan “Cha Duo Tang” Wild Harvested Hunan Fu Brick Tea, which is one of my favourite teas, but milder.
