Brewing up a sample this evening. There’s a mix of white and darker leaves, with small fuzz on them. Aroma of the dry leaves is kind of chocolatey. The wet leaf is lightly malty with a fruitiness to it, and the first steep comes out a very pale amber. Lots of presence in the high notes here, with a sweet fruit onset and some kind of sweet lasting aftertaste. There’s a little bit of a low, malty note in the background here.
The second steep follows quite closely in the steps of the first, with a little bit more body coming through.
It’s quite enjoyable! For me personally, it has a lot of the qualities I like from a black tea without the malty heaviness I get from a lot of them.
