I like this Dilmah tea. It steeps up to a dark down color with orange tints to it. This tea has a much cleaner taste than the other dilmah teas I have tried. It has no bitterness or aftertaste at all. It has a little astringency. It has a very nice flavor and a kick much like a mild assam tea. My wife likes this one as a breakfast tea as the assams that I have are much too strong for her.
