This tea is delicate and sweet with a hint of vegetal quality. The aroma is like roasted sunflower seeds. The flavor is light, sweet with a fresh asparagus aftertaste. The mouthfeel of this tea is smooth and silky.
With this tea, do not put too much when steeping. With a standard 120ml gaiwan, you really only need about 1 gram of the tea. If you like your tea stronger, you can use 2 grams instead of 1 gram.
If you often "accidentally" oversteep your tea, then steep using 175º Fahrenheit. Your tea won't get bitter at this temperature.
If you want a quick, ready-to-drink tea, then you can use 205º Fahrenheit for about 10 to 15 seconds.
