It's all about

the feeling of drinking frankincense. And just like with good incense, there's layer upon layer of aromas here. The leaves, the liquor, the taste in the mouth - each uniquely changes over time. Aromas disappear only to return with a new tint. Gong fu style is the preferred style to savor the changes more slowly, but if you're crazy enough to drink this in one long steep like I did here, it's still a fun ride (and a long one at that - this tea just goes and goes).
