I was going for quantity here and saw this and other Liptons on sale today so I jumped on the op. This isn’t something I would normally choose for myself, however, I wanted to broaden my horizons :) I must say I was pleasantly surprised. After steeping this smelled like those Werthers Candies or something. Again, not something I would normally go for. I thought it would be too sweet and caramelly (Oh! I made a new word!) but it wasn’t bad at all. It was actually a bit smooth. The coloring is that of a paler brown/black tea or brownish with reddish tint.
