This is one of those reviews where it starts off positive but ends strangely. Not negative, just kinda weird. The dry and wet aroma are start off nice. Sweet but balanced. Once the second steeping is done that disappears and the weirdness starts. I don’t think the flavoring was necessary. Whenever there is flavoring it leaves a weird after taste in my mouth. But beyond that, it makes for a pretty good cup. Slightly sweet in taste.
Color is golden, clear amber which is slightly darker than a riesling but not by much.
Fairly silky mouthfeel. The second steeping is still sweet but with an interesting tannic, almost granite note. I feel like I just licked a new granite countertop. Or maybe just a huge slab of unfinished granite, after it rained hard.
