What do we mean when we talk about "minerality" in tea?

Minerality is not just the taste of rock. Instead, minerality is our way of understanding a unique texture and physical sensation on the palate that is tingling and precise while being soft at the same time, like the lightest carbonation you could imagine.

This texture creates a sense of contrast that makes aftertastes even sweeter and allows them to build up over time, separate from the aroma.
