The dry leaf smells assam-like; barley and malt. It brews up a nice bright orange.
I don’t know what linseed tastes like, but this is a bit herbacious with mint that lingers into the aftertaste. Faint astringency, no bitterness. There’s a grainyness to it as well. Wouldn’t call it malty though.
The barley smell, coupled with the briskness makes me think an assamica leaf. The tea itself isn’t too heavy though, or very malty.
