For just a little more steep time, I’m getting a lot more sweetness with a bit more astringency. The nose is a replica of honey and the liqueur comes off with such malty sweetness you would think you put honey in your tea. Awesome!
The sweet and sour end note is coming off as hint of earthy orange. Blood orange maybe…
Actually, it’s almost a perfect mimic of orange blossom honey. Ahh!
(Same tea to leaf ratio and method as before).
