Right out of the bag, this tea gives an extremely interesting scent, very dense and very earthy, it is described as bitter-sweet chocolate, which isn’t far off.

The leaves are a dark and detailed green, long and twisted, staple black tea.

The interesting scents do not stop, as you steep the leaves you are given a less dense and more vegetal aroma.

The liquor is a very bright orange tint, with slight sweet floral scents.

For such a broad spectrum of sight and scent, I had no idea what to expect with the flavors.

The first sip gives an almost perfectly rounded dark taste, with the right amount of woody flavor and no aftertaste. Indeed, this is not what I was expecting, as the liquor just feels right at home in your mouth.

Although I am drinking this in the morning, I could see this dark tea as a perfect evening drink to enjoy with practically anyone who enjoys quality.
