This smelled like a riverbank. Like… with marsh grasses and shade. Really really nice, really green, really sweet.
The scent of the liqueur has a really nice buttery hay scent.
I might brew this at a lower temperature and for a longer time. I think the way I brewed it I missed out on some of the more subtle flavors. I’ll see about the second brewing.
It has a really nice buttery aftertaste!
ETA I did a second steep, this one with 180 degree water for 3 minutes, kind of winging it. The liqueur smelled more buttery rather then green to me and the flavor this time was a lot nuttier. There was still a fairly vegetal aftertaste. The liqueur had a really nice mouthfeel too. I think in the future I’ll go for the cooler temp.
