I received this as a part of Verdant’s sample pack, and am quite happy With it.
When dry the leaves smell musty and somewhat fruity. When wet they smell musty and like strongly heated plant matter (the closest thing I can liken it to is the smell of cannabis after it has been heated in a vaporizer).
It tasted Musty, malty and fiery without being smokey. A little like tobacco or dry leaves (which I guess it technically is). The flavor is not subtle like some oolongs, but it actually quite strong given how much tea I used (2.5 grams in a small gaiwan steeped for 20-50secs).
Flavors: Malt, Musty, Tobacco
