The twisted gold and black leaves are fairly short. The fragrance of the packaged leaves is slightly floral with a note of tomato.
Prepared, the tea is vegetal and incredibly mild. There’s the faintest impression of tannin bitterness but far less than most blacks.
This was a pleasant, simple black tea. However, it doesn’t really stand above teas that are more readily available in the US so I can’t say I’d go out of my way to purchase this one again.
