It was quite a shocker to me, actually. Not at all in a bad way, but just in a way that I had not experienced before. I am quite used to green and black teas, so the nuances of this tea were very new to me. It had many flavors, including the hint of chocolate. To me (and m sister who tried it out with me) reminded us very much like wine, an alcoholic scent. It had some spicy hints, and then turned sweet. Not to bad, to recap.
