Itsp 200ml. 2min 30s. Brews to a pretty orange tinged red.
Biscuit, sweet fruity tone like cooked apple peals, malt ( but not as strong as suggested by dry tea).

Top notes are fruity cooked apple with dried berries and a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg over a fairly biting bitter, malty base. More tannic than astringent but the astringency is definitely there leaving a tingling on the tongue. Faint vegetal tone between the fruit and malt. Biscuit is only slightly present. Thinner body that is given texture through the astringency. Not bad as a breakfast tea, but I think this is one you should under leaf a little, or it might be too bitter with ought milk and sugar.

The dry leaf is about the size of the CTC in Twinnings Irish Breakfast.

Thanks JustJames this is my first Ugandan tea! I like the fruitiness of it when brewed carefully.

Sadly, fruitiness is not allowed in Uganda anymore.
