Dry leaves smell delicious & wholesome, like a freshly opened box of raisin bran – strong raisin scent with baked wheat, malt, honey. Some woodsiness as well? Wet leaves have a fairly heavy tobacco aroma added. First brews are a lovely dark amber color & flavor is light, clean, smooth. I’m not picking up a great deal of complexity, but successive steepings remain smooth & pleasant. Starting to wash out at infusion 5.
