This has been on my want to try list for a long time. I don’t see many tea from African unless they are red bush tea. First time I had this I loved it, can taste all the fruit honey notes, I think subsequent brews I didn’t brew it up right due to time. Worth trying though…

Hints of baked/cooked peaches and apricots. It has a weedy quality (suggestive of wet hay or straw) that I have not seen anyone else mention. I have no experience with these tastes/smells, but some have said there are notes of lychee, plumeria, and loquat. Velvety and smooth; sweet, warm and elegant. No acidity or bitterness. Almost imperceptible astringency.
The appearance of dry leaves: twigs from spring shoots, dark in colour. The liquor is medium-golden.

Flavors: Apricot, Honey, Lychee, Peach, Straw, Sweet
