It’s been a while since I had a smooth black version of this one. Wintergreen Mint and cinnamon notes are apt. It’s fairly resilient to astringency, but it can get there. It was like a melted chocolate candy cane when I sipped it after an accidental western steep. Otherwise, it had the usual notes of tomato and eucalyptus as well. It’s a very good example, and a sample I was glad to have. I’m not sure if $13 an ounce is a good price, however.
