Tast­ing Notes

The dry leaf has a creamy, sweet, and smooth scent. The wet leaves smell earthy, sweet, flo­ral, strong with vanilla and marzipan.

The brewed liq­uid is very dark in appear­ance. The scent is more sub­dued but still creamy and sweet, remind­ing me of iced lemon pound cake.

The open­ing taste is smooth and creamy but not as sweet as the aroma was. The rich­ness fin­ishes with a slight astrin­gency and the fla­vor of grapes and fresh plums.

Prod­uct pro­vided for review.  All notes & opin­ions are my own.
