The dry leaves a cut very fine, the color is a very dark green with a sweet and slightly vegetative aroma. The brewed leaves maintain their intense dark green color and have a sweet and more pronounced vegetative aroma.
The liquor is clear with a bright, almost fluorescent green tint and a very slight aroma. The flavor is bright, and smooth with vegetative overtones and slight sweet and nut-like hints that linger on the tongue. Very slightly astringent, without the slightest a hint of bitterness. An excellent everyday tea.
