The aroma of the dry “leaf” drew me right in. The first time I had this, I had a difficult time pegging down what exactly the scent reminded me of, but then I inched closer and the best I could do was think of this as a cross between gingerbread and fruitcake.
But now that I’m down to the last cup, I’ve realized that this also has a hint of my grandma’s date squares. So it’s something along the lines of those desserty things.
Steeped, it falls a little short for me, though. I’m picking up on the apple, followed by the cinnamon, and then dried fruits. I don’t really get fig, but rather, a combination of dates and raisins (even though there are no raisins in here).
I’m glad I only picked up 14g. It’s worth the experience but not worth having around.
