Glad I bought a sample of this before going for a cake
Brews up a dusky burnt orange color. It has fairly strong tobacco and leather notes. Theres a bit of camphor and a light fig fruityness. The main thing that I find off putting is a strong sour/vegetal note that reminds of sauerkraut or artichoke.
The spent leaves look pretty nice. Mostly whole with thick stems and an olive green-medium brown color.
It’s not a bad tea, and I can see someone liking it a lot, but that someone is not me
