I get honey, grape must, ale and raisins on the nose. It’s a very sweet smell. The taste also is quite sweet with honey and fruit notes, but there is a distinctive herbal/savoury side to it too. I can identify rosemary, thyme and other herbs too giving the tea a bit of a bitter edge. I definitely wouldn’t call the taste bitter though. As a result, the tea can be pushed quite a lot, to create a thick mouthfeel, that is nevertheless very soft and mouth-watering.
This is actually a very infusable tea, I wasn’t counting, but it is still going strong around infusion 10 or so.
