So, I’ll start off by saying I think it’s hilarious they give you this cute little spoon that you can’t even use to scoop the leaves because the leaves are too big! Oh well. Idea is still cute.
The unsteeped leaves smell very interesting. There’s a smell that I can’t quite put my finger on, oddly enough it reminds me of alcohol. It has the same burning sort of smell. There’s undertones of a fruity sweetness.
The steeped liquid does not have a strong smell. The first sip tasted strongly of apples in a very good way, but also very surprising. Green apples specifically. There’s a sort of honey goldenness in the background. Overall, very enjoyable if not misleading, as it doesn’t really scream green tea much at all to me.
