The smell of this tea dry is fantastically rich and vegetal. It reminds me of spinach dip and pumpernickel bread, really heavy and full of flavour. When steeped, it smells so nicely toasted, and tastes that way as well. Even a bit smoky, which was a surprise. Further infusions bring out more of that woodsy, roasted flavour. I’m a bit sad, as this was a single sample I received along with one of my Teavivre orders, and I wish I had more of this tea to enjoy.
