these leaves are small, spindly, and black, with slivers of green leaf mixed in. They smell of hay and honey.
I used just over 1 tsp of leaves in 10 oz of water, at 190 for 3 min.
the liquor is a nice amber. It has a slight astringency, but it is not bad. The taste is of hay and fall leaves, with a faint aftertaste of honey.
Not a bad tea, but i prob wouldnt go out of my way to keep this around.
