The rinse to wash and awaken the tea fill the air with floral and slightly forest fragrances while the soup colour is already mature orange tones. Since we are nine thirsty aspirants, each tasting round consists of two pouring and not longer than 10 seconds each rinse. My first several cups let experience two dominating tastes, a fruity one, direction raspberry and a gentle rather complex tone of not fully faded bitterness and sweet camphor after taste.
The quite stable sensation and rich mouth feelings lasts and after the fourth round some nutty honey hints can be recognized as well as a bit earthy, less camphor after taste. In the end we cooked the leaves, extracting a soup where drupe hints could be perceived.
