Warm, nutty aroma with a definitive steamed mung bean undertone and hints of sweet floral fragrance. Tasty (umami) and yet clean infusion with a sharp pitch of raw ginseng bitterness with tints of salt. Long umami aftertaste and sweetness at the throat.
The taste character is quite different, albeit pleasant, when this tea is infused lightly. To experience its full spectrum, steep the leaves in a well pre-heated high density Yixing pot between at 75~80°C and infuse with a minimum of 2 g of leaves to each 100 ml of water for 4 to 6 minutes.
