This kind of smelled a tad fruity to me – dry leaf wise
Wet leaves are a woodsy smell
Liquid doesn’t smell much if at all
It’s a medium black tea color…nice color!
I can see how some would say this is bitter. I’m thinking it’s a natural bitter and not like an oversteeped bitter type taste. It’s a different-type of bitter if you know what I mean.
The taste grew on me…to where I almost kind of like it.
