Like it says on the packet – its a rich dark and complex tea. Colour is light straw and slightly yellow. This is deceptive because rather than being a light delicate tea, which the colour suggests, the flavour explodes in the mouth from the first sip. Hard to pinpoint exactly what flavours because there are so many in the overlapping complexity of different tastes. Brewed a second time the flavours were no less pronounced, but easier to separate on the palate. An all round wonderful tea and worthy of exploration. as a foot note – the tea was described as “organic” by Ringtons.
