The leaves of this tea brew a light coppery-green liquor. A sweet smell of steam rolls from the cup, and the brew itself has a thin light feel in the mouth. The muscatel flavor has a slight astringency to it, but not so much to make it bitter and unpleasant, while slight notes of vegetation fill out the flavor.
