the appearance of the rolled leaves suggest great care from the artisan
the dry tea smells fabulous!
wet leaves indicates green vegetables (spinach/swiss chard) which carries over to a robust brew. the smokyness gives body to a somewhat oily brew that leads to an acute mineral finish. ( 4-5min 85C)
intoxicating florals from the dried beads are much less present in the tea, still lovely fruity notes arises here and there.
