Large, dry two tone leaves, a high concentration of furry silver buds, with a noticeable aroma suggestive of juicy, semi-dried apricots.
The spongy wet leaves are aromatic, spicy, and vegetal, with an undertone of vanilla, and are a good mix of sage green and brown in colour.
3-4g of dry leaves were steeped in 150ml of water for 30-50sec@80-90deg. C. The brewed liquor is a light golden colour, with faint, indistinct aroma, and late suggestion of sweetness. In the mouth it is creamy, smooth, minty fresh, stimulating, sweet, and tastes pleasant, sweet, and floral, with a spicy fresh finish.
