Rich and robust and complex. Liquor isn’t real dark, more of an amber. Not as strong as some black tea, say an assam, but not as overwhelming, either. And more complex. This isn’t a tea that is going to punch you in the mouth, coffee style. Its more like a wine. You have to appreciate it and its depths.
Probably worth trying just for the unique shape. The curled balls (pellets?) of the tea are interesting to look at both in the jar and during the brewing process, as water bubbles spring forth from the orbs as they slowly unfurl.
