Well…the color is interesting…it’s light brown with an orange hue…I guess that would be the best away to describe it. It’s not much for smell but if I had to say one thing about the aroma it would be there is a HINT of wood smell to it…but not very much. As for the taste…it’s very weak! One of the more mild – if not the most mild – black tea I have ever tasted, really. It’s not bad…it’s just quite weak.
