Dry leaf smells of fresh leather, bourbon casks, and the tiniest hint of peppery spice. Wet aroma is worn leather, aged parchment and dark, smoky bourbon. First infusions have wet cave mineralogy, charred oak that’s been soaked in whisky and leather. Later steeping get smoother and sweeter, like silk and pine honey. Texture is thick, full and like velvet going down. Gives a comforting mood boost and calms indigestion. Definitely a shou worth drinking!
