Backlogging from this summer again.
Brewed this in my 12 oz mug with a brew basket like usual. The dry leaf was different shades of olive, the leaves looked chopped and smelled slightly roasty, it reminded me of some gunpowders I’ve had.
The wet leaf smelled more like a nice forest after the rain. The infusions was a darker golden color with a slight roasted note and a hint of seafood.
The taste was slight floral note, hints of asparagus and green beans. There was a slight astringency at the end of the sip, it was hardly noticeable. There was a bit of a roasted note, possibly a smokey note in there too, it was very faint. I wonder if I would try this tea again now if I would appreciate it more now that I’m starting to develop a palate for teas that have that roasted quality to them.
