I did get some floral notes in the first brew, but none thereafter. Nice deep veggie asparagus goodness on the second...with a mellow chaqi feeling coming on. Third became more sweet in a good way, with the veggie notes waning a bit. The fourth was very much like the third compelling me to try a fifth brew....which was worth having. Excellent. I give this one a 4.75.
