"Upon opening the bag, My first thought, was, well, What did i order? first smell was like Cloves, Basil, and hay, or dry grass. Leaf was uniform cut, and a Dull green-brown. Smelled peppery while I brewed a pot. Liquor was better than expected, Sweetened with Local raw honey. Over all, will order again."
