The scent is sweetly vegetal with notes of cooked carrots and roasted nuts and is thoroughly pleasant.
However, the tea’s flavor is much sharper and brighter than the aroma would purport creating an interesting though slightly off-putting contrast.
. . . not very complex, yet fresh and deceptively delicious in its duplicity. Tricky, indeed . . .
I have recently found that using less leaf cuts the sharpness and allows a honeysuckle flavor to come through.
