I am not fond of the dry leaf scent. The aroma morphs as it steeps, however. This I appreciate. It’s a typical Green Tea Coloring. The taste is sweet and green but without the harsh green aftertaste you can sometimes get. It’s hard to believe that this tea is an artichoke tea. Thumbs up for the creative-ness. It’s a pretty tasty tea. I am going to do resteeps/infusions and report back, too.
