Dry leaf aroma would mislead you into thinking this tea is one note, flat, and grassy. However, the experience of this tea is so different.
Wet leaf aroma reveals the complexity of this one. Notes of grass, cocoa cream, maybe some subtle nutmeg or something. The leaves lose their complex scent after several steeps, and begin to smell very grassy and somewhat bitter.
Actual flavor was beautifully floral with rose, jasmine, peony, and honeysuckle. Slight sweetness of flower nectar balanced with a semi-nutty vegetal barley scent as well. Complex, beautiful. Will spend more time with this one and update my tasting note as I discover more.
