Dry leaves have very faint scent - hints at tobacco. They don't look like they have aged 4 years, very much like the 2010 EoT offerings.
Rinsing and the initial infusion smell strongly of a campfire made using fresh logs.
1st infusion - No flavors other than wood smoke are detectable. Coppery aftertaste lingers. Light amber broth.
2nd - Campfire scent still strong but a ripe fruit impression is behind it. Still not detecting other flavors, certainly not everything listed on Mandarin's Tea Room site. Finish is cool, and the Qi is starting to come on. Feeling slightly loopy, hah.
3rd - Scent has a bit more spice and fruit. Still no other outstanding flavors. Nice catch at the back of the throat. Some drying sensation.
4th - Toffee scent coming through now. I'm still not having much luck picking up other flavors.
Have to stop here for now, I'll come back to this later.
