The dry leaves are black with highlights, but not much. They smell like earthy forest floor and are mostly the same size throughout.
The wet leaves have a woody, leafy smell. They are chocolate brown in color with a few highlights of olive green. It would last at least another couple of infusions.
The liquor is a beautiful bright red-brown color! It has a very light woody air. The taste is woody, a bit astringent and dry.
Overall, I wouldn’t buy, drink or recommend this tea. The instructions said 100 degrees Celsius, but no time. Perhaps I brewed it wrong. I might give it another try, another time.
