Nothing to exciting here.

Dry hay, vegetation, and field flowers are the dominant notes.

There is a bit of fruity sweetness but it’s a little underwhelming.

Some astringency, bitterness, and a slight sour tang have developed in the second steep.

Flavor notes: Dry hay, vegetation, field flowers, orange blossom honey and a bit of a sour tang.
