Dry leaves smell like sandlewood. Wet, they smell like tomatoes. Liquor brews up pale reddish amber and has a bit of the tomato smell of the leaves along with a salty smell similar to the Adagio Irish Breakfast I had earlier. I’ve had other breakfast blends with a similar nose. Is this characteristic of Sri Lankan Teas? The flavor is bright but fairly neutral. I do get a hint of raspberries. A roasty aftertaste that dissipates quickly.
