The dry leaves have a roasted, woody smell. They are a black color and vary in sizes. However, the sizes seem consistent throughout. The wet leaves have a deep wood smell with a very light floral not after. They are a deep chocolate brown color and seem strong enough for at least three more infusions. The liquor has a woody, cracker taste. It is very smooth and not astringent or dry, at all! It has a silky medium body that begs to be drank.
Overall, it was great! I love it! I would buy, drink and recommend this tea! I thought it was a versatile taste that was inviting and smooth. This is definitely a tea that I could see being served on any occasion. I think it would go well with most flavors and would definitely lighten any mood!
