The taste is wonderfully complex. The liquor has a lingering, sweet aftertaste with a hint of flowery overtones.
The tea leaves are fully hand-crafted and truly a sensational work of art. Huge and flat tea leaves with criss-cross pattern on them. The shape is like the tip of a spear and part of the stems are reddish in color.
