It is lightly roasted and semi-fermented bringing out an amazingly clean and smooth aftertaste.

The dry leaves have an aroma of sweet cream with a hint of green.

The infusion is pale yellow-green with an aroma of sweet cream, and a sweet, buttery taste with a long velvety finish and no astringency.

The rich, bold flavor and aroma becomes slightly more subtle by a second and third infusion as the leaves unfurl and it leaves behind a pleasant aftertaste.
