Profile: Liquor is a dark, coppery brown. Aroma is malt and wet leaves, like a combination between a pu-erh and Yunnan black. Taste is somewhat malty, with slight sweetness and the forest-floor earthiness of a Gunpowder green. Aftertaste is brief, but pleasant. Mouthfeel is smooth, with no astringency or bitterness.
Other notes: It is obvious that this is a blend, but the flavors mesh well with one another. Steeping is easy and very forgiving.
Verdict: Excellent for a bagged tea. I enjoyed the earthy sweetness and was surprised by the mellowness of the cup; it is light and refreshing compared to morning blends.
