Leaves: they have a distinctive fairly strong scent… that i just cant seem to identify… it just smells like something you’d imagine drinking in the morning… the leaves are pretty small while some look rolled others do not, not sure if this is intended?
Liquor: the color is dark, and it steeps very very fast… ive often overbrewed this tea… i use times dramatically short of the 3-5m prescribed times for blacks….that being said if you get it just right its very nice and worthy of everyday drinking, has that smooth(malty???) feel and if you dont overbrew it has a slight tinged taste to it? like a metallicness? or a rawness? not a bad thing just strange
overall i do like this tea(when i dont over brew it :rage:)… but i would like to try some more teas before settling( irishbreakfast teas are my staple tea )
