The tea I’m drinking doesn’t look like this – but it says it’s what it is so here, goes!
It doesn’t really smell like anything and looks like a lighter black tea finely cut instead of a green tea. It infuses REALLY Dark, too, much like a black tea. (Perhaps it was mismarked?)
This has a VERY subtle cherry flavor (so maybe it isn’t mismarked or maybe it’s a black/green blend???) It just seems too dark to be a straight-up green…regardless it’s tasty. It’s not overly scented or flavored at all!
As it cools at room temperature for a few moments it’s starting to taste more like a green but it’s still very dark – much like a green/black tea blend!
Eventho I’m a bit confused my this tea’s name – I am enjoying my cup! It’s yummy! It’s flavor is VERY subtle which is a bit different from Empire’s other teas. I’m a fan of the taste of this one but I’m not going to rate it just yet because it puzzles me overall.
