The dry leaf LOOKS like a black tea (or at least a well oxidized Oolong) but it definitely smells like a green tea with its vegetal aroma. The brewed tea is darker than most green teas tend to be.
Although the aroma of the dry leaf led me to think that I’d be drinking a strongly vegetative tea, the vegetal notes are actually quite a bit softer than I expected them to be. I do taste some vegetation here but I taste the other flavors more prominently: Lovely floral notes, notes of fruit and a buttery overtone.
A well-rounded tea with a nice, brothy texture. It’s a very satisfying drink.
