The smell of warmed leaves in the gaiwan give a raisin aroma while also looking like raisins in appearance (the tight and small dark leaves). The wash and first steeping produced an altumnal orange colored liquor with a peachy taste. The third steeping was fantastic yielding a more complex flavor profile rounding out with a buttery and milky finish while also mai ting the subtle notes of peach. I haven’t finished brewing but it’s an excellent day drinker !!
