The loose leaves smell of a nice caramel. Not like caramel candy but more of a smokey caramel. Brews up to a nice pale yellow color. The taste is nice crisp and light, buttery and earthy but slightly sweet from the caramel and sugar. I can taste hints of the caramel here and their but not too much. All in all it was a nice tea but not too sure if I would buy it again.
Second steeping: (Steep time: 4 Minutes) Less of a sweet taste with more of a buttery taste. Not much else to say.
