Now here’s a straight-up black tea I could sniff all day! WOW! LOVE this aroma! So fresh, crisp, and malty! The taste is malty, too, medium-strong in black tea taste, but the highlight for me, with this one, is a “cheery” sweet and sour yet CREAMY flavor that is very memorable! I like this very much! YUM!!!!!
