"Oh, my. This has a big but refined mouthfeel, almost buttery and low in tannin (at 3 min brewing time), and an exquisite flavor of milk chocolate and raisins." Barry Lawson

Infused Leaf: Excellent, Liquor: Very Good,
"The dry leaves remind me of a good Kenilworth lot, but the liquor has a far earthier aspect especially in the nose which reminds me of certain Chinese teas. I suspect this one would fool me in a taste test. A good selection for certain moods."
