This tea is a very nice Ceylon blend. It has a rich flavour, and resteeps well retaining a full flavour for at least three resteeps. I quite enjoyed it.

The dry leaves are small to medium full leaves with some silver buds. It smells of sweet potatoe and orange, with a note of burnt sugar.

It tastes of burnt sugar, a hint of blackberry and orange, with a hint of vegetal. It is slightly flowery almost like a note of rose. The tea company suggests that this should taste of plum. My first steep was longer than I normally use and perhaps I would have found this note if I had shortened the steep.

It brews to colour of mahogany, with a medium body and little to no astringency and a hint of bitterness. There is an aftertaste of homemade brown sugar pull toffee. It leaves me with a feeling of calm wakefulness and is very smooth.

The 2nd steep similar flavour wuth citrus notes coming more forward and a burnt sugar flavour present with sweet potatoe. The 3rd steep has sweet potatoe, vegetal notes, and indistinct fruit notes. It has a sweet, lightly tangy aftertaste like having eaten ripe berries.

A nice tea to drink all day.
