The aroma of this tea really didn’t strike me as unique. It just smelled like black tea. In the cup, it had a amber orange color, reminding me of a cinnamon color. I don’t know why, it just does. The first sip tasted a little bit sweet to me, and malty. As it cooled, the flavor was very mild. There is one very impressive factor; It is incredibly smooth. It doesn’t at all taste like any other black tea I have had but I felt it was still not enough to set it apart from the other teas I have tried in the past. I will definitely try this one again, it is a good tea, just not my favorite.
