The dry leaves (which, like a bonehead, I forgot to snap a photo of) smell woody, like a forest. They are black with brown highlights and gorgeous!
The wet leaves smell like wet forest floor. They are beautiful and strong, lasting at least another couple of infusions. Maybe three or four. They are chocolate brown with olive green highlights.
The liquor has a sawdust taste and is a bit brisk and dry. It is caramel in color and has a silky, medium body.
Overall, it was a bit astringent, but good. I would drink, but not buy or recommend this tea.
