This is one of the most unique teas I’ve ever tasted. I never knew a black tea could smell like this. It has a very strong aroma that reminds me of black cherries and cinnamon. Like the description notes I also detected a wintergreen aroma. It has a very light taste with no astringency. The aroma doesn’t quite carry over into the taste, but this may be because I under-brewed it. I was afraid it was going to get bitter, but I’m guessing you can infuse this tea for quite a long time before tasting bitterness or feeling astringency.
