The dry leaves were in cake form, black and almost coal looking. It had a beautiful woody forest floor smell.

The wet leaves have a smokey and slightly woody, slightly sawdust smell. They are a very dark brown color and very strong. I would say it will last another three or four infusions, maybe.

T
he liquor (which I forgot to take a picture of) has a woody air and a deep brown color. The taste is woody and just a bit astringent and dry.

Overall, it was ok. I would drink it again and recommend it to try,but I wouldn’t buy it. You can get it here:
