I have been lazy in not rating this one before, it is one of my favorite teas. I love the leaves it is a mixture of slightly twisted brown/black and fuzzy golden leaves. The wet leaves smell of honey and a warm field of grass to me. The tea is a lovely golden brown color. It is a gently complex tea without much astringency. It tastes of honey, overlying a warm vegetal base and a little nutty. I drink it black but it is satisfying with sugar as well.
