The dry leaf gives off a sweet aroma of dried dates or prune. When infused, the black broken leaves, and a sprinkling of golden buds, brew a bright honey-colored liquor which has hints of caramel and fruit with floral high notes. Nearly no astringency. 2 kilos originally available. Brewing: 7 grams (1 tbsp), 195 deg, 2 min, 2 infusions.
