This is definitely a tea that you will like or hate. The pungent aroma is something of a surprise, and has a definite air of tobacco about it. The liquor is a deep rich brown, almost more of what you would expect from a black than an oolong. The brew retains the hint of tobacco in the aroma, but the taste is easy and quite smooth on the palate. A great little workhorse tea in my opinion.
