It’s a very light, clear black tea. The color is that of an orangey-gold, a little darker than that of a green tea. It smells crisp and floral. Upon a first steep, the floral tones present in the smell come out. It’s not a strong black tea. It has about the body of a green tea with the earthiness of a black – there isn’t a lot of natural sweetness to it. But it works. I’m not sure I would pay the $10/oz, but since I picked up about 6oz at 75% off, I’m certainly going to enjoy what I have. It’s nice that this tea can be steeped several times, and is good when blended – I’ve tried it steeped up to five times, and my favorite blend is this Darjeeling on a second steep with about a teaspoon of Dragonwell green tea added.
