The Dry Leaf: See how the leaves are rolled? There is a warm, slightly smoky aroma here.
The Wet Leaf (After Steeping): The aroma is quite warm. I got a scent of caramel and some boiled veggies.
I actually took this photo after my third steep.
Liquid: Isn't that a gorgeous color?! The taste is slightly smoky with dark fruit and caramel. There's a slight astringency at the finish.
Iced: Lighter in color, but still a glorious chestnut amber color.
Scent: The smokiness is there, but dark fruits hit the nose more.
Taste: The smokiness is more pronounced here, as is the astringency. While good iced, this tea loses some of the nuances of its flavor. I prefer it hot.
