The dry tea leaves smell very bold, malty and almost chocolatey. It is really quite fun nice watching the leaves unfurl and pop to the surface of the water.

The brew smells just like the leaves except much more potent! It’s very difficult to describe the smell, but it does smell quite phenomenal. The liquor is a vibrant red colour, transparent and very pleasing to look at while drinking from a glass teacup!

As for the taste, I’m a huge fan! I come from a background of green tea, so black teas are a recent endeavour of mine. I really like the boldness of this tea. It really packs a punch with it’s maltiness and really wakes you up after only a few sips… quite a powerful tea! This tea is a bit astringent, but if you can get over that, I highly recommend it to black tea lovers!
