From the nose, I am getting a pan-seared scent. The leafs seems to have been over fired, which would give this green an atypical malty attribute (weird, I know). From the taste, there is a distinct butter and nut flavor. The butter is more of an undertone and is hidden behind the subtle “nutiness” and predominate “maltiness.” The nutty flavor could be compared to a chestnut. It is definitely not a common household nut. The tea is light weight with a clean finish.
