1st Steep: 30 sec – Liqueur very pale, resembling more that of a very light green leaf cold steep. Pot smell – resembling that of a monkey picked oolong, yet softer, subtler. Taste – very delicate green in body and initial taste. Nowhere is there any bitterness to be found. Slight hints of toastiness, soft green straw type wisps during after taste.
