Once completely unfurled, the mostly whole leaves were a uniform chocolate color. This tea was almost puerh like in both in taste and it’s ability to withstand multiple infusions. I reached seven infusions before I thought that I had gotten all that I could out of it. I had the feeling I could have squeaked out a few more weaker infusions as well. The flavor was complex and evolved with each and every infusion. It started out earthy and nutty and changed to a rounder and more gentle flavor that had hints of vanilla. I would definitely recommend this tea.
