In appearance: large, chocolate-brown lumps of tightly pressed fragments of tea leaves and buds. The aroma is restrained, woody with a nutty accent. The infusion is slightly cloudy, reddish-chestnut.
The bouquet of the ready-made tea is mature, nutty, with woody, balsamic and bread notes. The aroma is deep and warm, mellow, nutty-and-milky. The taste is full-bodied and smooth, velvety, sweetish, with a slight bitterness and spicy nuances.
