Dry leaves are so, so pretty. Smells definitely malty dry.
Steeped, this is super malty, bready, yeasty, dark and satisfying. I can get some of the oak notes but don’t notice any florals at all. Maybe a tiny bit of astringency at the end of the sip, but it’s a teensy, tiny bit. The taste does linger a lot in the mouth.
Though this is something I could easily get too much of in a weekend and it might upset my tummy if I drank several cups at a sitting this is another unflavored black from Butiki that I simply must keep in my cupboard.
