I’m not sure what to make of this! I was expecting something a little different based on the reviews and description.

Method: about 1tbsp (sounds like a lot, but these are small, pointy leaves), 8 oz, 205 degrees, 2 minutes, ForLife brew in mug strainer

Dry Leaf Aroma: This smells like a malted campfire.

Brewing Aroma: More campfire

Flavor: I think this tastes a little like dark malt. There’s some sweetness, which seems to be confusing my taste buds. On the one hand, it tastes a little smoky, but then there’s this lovely sweetness that comes charging through. I’m going to leave this note here for now, and then I am going to try this with a series of very short steeps, and compare. I didn’t dislike it… I’m just not sure exactly what to think!
