In appearance: dark brown flagellum twisted leaves, buds and thin cuttings. The aroma is saturated, balsamic with an earthy accent. The liquor is transparent, with a dark amber shade.
The bouquet of the brewed tea is mature, multifaceted, woody balsamic, with earthy, tobacco, herbaceous, buckwheat and berry notes. The aroma is deep and complex, woody balsamic with a hint of berry. The taste is rich and smooth, with the sourness of dry berries and nuances of spices, transforming into the lingering finish.
