Very small black leaves. Brewed it has a sweet fruity aroma with a slight resinous note. The sweetness and the resinous note carry through to the taste with the barest bitter note and a bit of something that might be a buttery note. Nicely tasty.
Edited to add that this is a wonderful tea that I have thoroughly enjoyed. I am upping the rating.
