This tea is no where near as strong as I was expecting for a black tea (forgot to put that little bit in the name here…). The tea has a very light floral note on the first brew and doesn’t seem to get much stronger as the tea steeped in the rest of the water. The second pot tastes a little bit stronger (and was steeped for a minute or so more), but still tastes more like an oolong than a proper black tea. This tea is very nice for sipping on, but I don’t think my other oolongs will have to worry about being replaced any time soon by their pu-eh brother.
