Scent of the wet leaf:
Baked sweet potatoes (each time it smells like some different version of sweet potatoes, so weird)

Scent of the liquor:
Malt, but otherwise indistinct.

This steeping is lighter than the last, in flavor, in texture (mouthfeel is a lot thinner), and in color. The beautiful aftertaste is much more faint as well. I still have a decent flavor but I don’t think I’d be able to get another steep out of this…

My tea habits:

*I am an unashamed Lipton iced-tea drinker (mass quantities, year round).
*I like hot teas but only in cold weather (and occasionally late summer nights or mornings).
*I love Japanese greens (the more seaweed-y the better) and good strong malty black teas.
*I do NOT love smoke in any form.
*Vanilla, cinnamon, or lemon anything will usually pique my interest.
*I’m working on pu-erh but it’s definitely going to take some time to grow on me.
