This tea is extremely variable, it jumps from one end of the spectrum of taste clear across to the other side.
It starts out a rich black tea with an undertone of spices: cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger. The flavor is mild and well blended, not spicy, but spiced as in hints of the spices. This is while it is hot. As it cools, however, the tea flavor itself is lost and the cooled drink quickly becomes overrun with cardamom and ginger, and so spicy that it has become bitter.
I am disappointed in teas that start out decently flavored and then get undrinkable as they cool, and unfortunately this is one of them.
