When I opened the package, the dry leaves smelled strongly and unpleasantly grassy. I was concerned, but plunged forward.
Once brewed, it turned out really nice—there was a touch of grassy flavor, but it was subtle, and not the ugly harsh sort of grassy. Mostly it was a bright but gentle blend of other scents and flavors, with a sweet kind of spinachy vegetal, a hint of spring blossoms and honey, and just a bit fruity. The spinach comes out more on the second steep.
