I think I may have misbrewed this one. It had that pure-black tea taste that really only describes itself. The aroma in the package was that sweet tobacco, dried raisin smell, but when brewed it didn’t seem to have that flavor. It was tasty, and deserving of more attention than I gave it. It also had a hint of aluminum. Seriously, not just metallic flavor, but aluminum specifically. It wasn’t unpleasant (the aluminum), but I think it points to a misbrew rather than a fault with the tea.
