Dry leaf aroma: Sweet and crisp with undertones of honey.
Wet leaf aroma: Slightly vegetal with suggestions of hay.
Preparation: Brewed western style in an all-glass infuser mug.
First/only steeping: 5 minutes at 210 degrees.
The aroma is predominately hay with subtle vegetal notes and the liquor is a medium golden brown. Honey Black tastes much like it smells, hay-vegetal-black tea, with an aftertaste of hay and a vegetal tinge.
Funny enough, while drinking this tea I kept thinking about spinach. I find it odd to experience this in a black tea, albeit I am still learning a lot about varietals.
Flavors: Hay, Spinach, Vegetal
