Gunpowder Assam tea
This tea was such a surprise. The balls don't unfurl, they get soft then just crumble resulting in sediment that's very hard to strain out. There is very little tannin mouth feel, which oddly results in a cup that seems both smooth but underwhelming that doesn't match the dark hardy color it brews into. Puzzling but not necessarily bad.
