The dry leaves are small and twisted. They are a dark black color with touches of brown
throughout, giving off a rich aroma with notes of cocoa and sweet woodiness. Once steeped they open slightly and take on a dark reddish hue, revealing a sweet fruity aroma like that of stewed raspberries.

The liquor is a clear amber color with a touch of garnet. It has aromas of aged cedar, raspberry, and cocoa with a medium bodied palate, and lush finish. Bright notes of granite lead to a sweet touch of fruit and chocolate, ending with a refined hint of aged cedar.
