Good, rich flavor. Tastes much like Twinings Irish Breakfast, which is also an Assam/Ceylon blend. The leaves are not as broken as the Twinings, and are probably of somewhat higher quality. On the other hand, I am not sure that this is worth the extra expense ($10 for a four oz tin vs. $4.99 for 3.53 oz tin of the Twinings. The second steeping was weaker, but it allowed the Ceylon flavor to come out more.
