The leaves are surprisingly small and crushed up – I’m glad I have a fine mesh strainer now, otherwise I’d have a ton of detritus in the bottom of my mug. It doesn’t seem to affect the taste negatively when it’s brewed properly, though it might be part of the reason it was so aweful when I oversteeped it. I’m not sure if the tea actually looks like this or if Lena was at the bottom of her tin/bag when she gave me some. :D
It resteeps well, although the second cup (@5:45) is distinctly more strawberry than shortcake.
