This was too intriguing to resist throwing into my last order.
Dry, it’s interesting; the leaves are all different sizes and shapes, some tightly rolled/curled, some not. It looks fairly different from the photo on DT’s site. It’s also a more uniform and somewhat brighter green. It smelled mild but toasty and a bit nutty.
It made a nice green-gold liquor, and the taste followed the dry aroma: mild, toasty. It reminds me quite a lot of fired senchas I’ve had. Very tasty and refreshing, but not radically different from others in my cupboard.
