The dry leaves have an aroma of smoky menthol and seasoned wood.
The golden infusion has an aroma of menthol (mint) and green melon with a light taste of fire roasted vegetables, a faint hint of tart melon and a cooling, almost minty finish.
The second infusion of this tea was the most flavorful and I would not recommend a third. The minty menthol notes were unusual and I'm not sure if that is a specific characteristic of this tea or due to picking up the aroma sometime after processing. The results are pleasantly mild and I may try this tea again at a higher temperature to see if it can bring out more flavor and aroma.
