This has a slight woodsy aroma and on top of that a more charcoal type aroma with hints of fruit…altho I can’t tell you what type of fruit…and it’s more of a rind or skin of the fruit than the actual ‘meat’ or ‘flesh’ of the fruit if that makes sense.
As for the taste…it’s VERY different! Again, taste-wise, I can taste the fruit comparison but it’s more of a rind/zest or skin type fruit taste than the actual fruit itself, I suppose. There is a slight drier-wine type taste so maybe the fruit I am tasting could be comparable to grape-skin type taste!? Not sure…but it’s interesting!
The more I sip the more I like. And the more I am thinking of a wine comparison. There are hints at the strawberry that Shinobicha mentioned…I’m thinking more like the top of the strawberry – like up top by the leaves and stem rather than a plump juicy strawberry. Again…I hope you can picture what I am trying to describe here…lol…
Regardless this is GOOD because it’s interesting and unique and I am enjoying my cuppa!
