I needed a pick me up at work and this was one of three that I chose. This was the most disappointing out of the three. The leaf quality looks very nice. The dry leaf includes long tendrils of black and gold. They carry a dry smoky scent. I brewed up a cup, and it was bland. The only flavor I could taste was wood. This wasn’t a nice wood either. It tasted like I was gnawing on tree bark in backyard. The taste then went south and bitter after a few minutes. This batch might have just had a rough trip being transported, or maybe it has been bagged too long.
Flavors: Bitter, Wood
