VERY fine/thin/long leaves – lovely! This infuses to a wonderful dark brown color! As I opened the pouch I thought I could smell a hint of cocoa – almost like a dark hot chocolate powder of sorts. After infusing It was a solid black tea with earthy characteristics throughout. This is a great, bold black tea – not astringent tho! It has a slight chewiness to it and I can pick up a hint of a nuttiness taste right smack dab in the center of the sip. It has a flavorful but smooth ending tho. I really like this!
