little Glass pitcher method (grandpa style):
when i smell the leaves dry, they smell nice! roasted, toasty and crisp
when i smell the leaves wet, its the same as above but also has a aged smell to it (in a good way)
when i smell the brewed tea, it smells same as above but also has a coffee/espresso taste to it! :D
When i taste the brewed tea, it tastes like all of the above! :D
