  • Ambience

    Leaf: Dark green and twisted gems with a pointy brown stems. Harder on touch. Aroma of apricot and nutmeg, slightly pepperminty with an undertone of green wood.
    Infused leaf: Dark, swampy green like and huge leaf with a brown stem. Strong aroma of spice, nutmeg, wood and vivid straw.
    Liquor: Fresh, light yellow and clear liquor with a reminiscent bouquet of orchids and peonies dipped in sweet honey. Warming and smooth cup, velvety after-taste of apricots and orange blossoms lingers in mouth for a while. Very warming tea with no astringency, great for up to 6 infusions
