Dry – this smells like fruit and a little like sour wood…if that makes sense.
It smells woodsy, nutty, fruity, and like honey.
It’s medium brown in color.
Toasty Houjicha is the primary flavor but both the pear and the honey work wonderfully on the assist! One thing I noticed is that the honey notes are some of the BEST honey notes I have picked up on in a tea to date! The reason they stood up and out to me is because most honey flavors in tea that I have tasted taste old, stale, or artificial. This is sweeter and more natural tasting…almost like honey with sugar. It’s very nice!!!!
Interesting offering…nice cuppa!
