Is color is on the more orange side, but it definitely smells fresh. Its aroma is like grass, pineapple and bananas. Its got a bit of a malty character but its quite strong, though compared to other young cakes the year might have helped a bit, and it could be the compromising of the recipes towards drink now. But it still has a bit of that banana like tropical feel to it that I picked up in the aroma.
Actually it bares its fangs in the second infusion, much more potent and stronger, with a distinct nutty aroma.
In the third infusion its almost like a bitter rose water, with a slightly candy like characteristic.
This is proving to be quite interesting.
