Leaves were from the bottom of the can, but the tea normally has pretty, yellow tips. It has a beautiful, slightly smoked odor.

The liquor is a deep red-brown color. Not quite as dark or ruby as pu-erh, but almost. Smell nearly the same as the dry leaves, but nuttier. The flavor is astringent, but not bitter, like slightly tangy nuts. Really delightful, toasty black tea. I could drink this all day, but not for the price of a premium tea.
