Wanted something unique for the second tea of the day. 8 grams, quick rinse, flash steep. Not too much of an aroma comes off this to start with, and once I do start getting something, it’s hard for me to place.
Liquor in steep one is gold in color and marshmallowy thick in the mouth. First sips are like cranberry, with the aftertaste being quite like that of cranberry sauce. There is some definite tobacco that becomes quite apparent in steep two. Got another good one out of this and then I oversteeped it and got all the bitterness in the throat.
Followed that up with a flash steep and it became drinkable again, but I’m going to have to give this one another go in a new session sometime to better evaluate the experience.
