Tea leaves are very dark brown almost black, mixed with some lighter brown leaves. In the mixture there is some bigger leaves, but majority is broken. Leaves smell of baked apple, mixed with woody, earthy and malty notes.
Brewed tea is hazelnut brown/dark amber. Aroma of the tea is sweet and slightly citrusy, which reminds me a Russian samovar tea with slice of lemon.
Taste reminds again Russian style tea, with earthy and malty notes, with chestnut honey.
After taste is rather delicate.
Could imagine drinking this tea russian style (with little slice of lemon) on cold winter months.
Yunomi suggest also drinking it with milk, which needs to be still tried at this point.
