The dry leaves have a light sawdust smell with a woody air. They are black in color with a few highlights and varying sizes.
The wet leaves have a woody smell with a light sawdust finish. It reminds me of soy sauce, a bit. They are chocolate brown in color and would be strong enough for a few more infusions.
The liquor is a mahogany color. it has a woody taste with a very light astringency in the rear of the mouth.
Overall, it was ok. Perhaps it would be better with a different steep. However, I wouldn’t buy, drink or recommend.
