I just finished four steeps of this for the first time, and before I looked up what other tea lovers of this tea have said I made four notes per steep.
Peaches. Astringent. Pepper. Light vegetal broth.
It really ran the gamut!
Just for fun, as I wrote the above blog notes I steeped it one more time, in hotter water than prior brews and it tastes like steamed peas, and that's when I realized there really should not have been a fifth steep. It was a fun, inquisitive tea, that played games with my sense of taste and spurned on some memories of a pasture somewhere I once walked in as a child, and I was sad the session ended so soon. Still, a very nice green tea indeed. A longer life is all I would ask for, but I will take what this tea can offer with gratitude.
