The tea, some manner or ceylon, maybe pekoe, smells and tastes as if it was previously parboiled. Perhaps dried and cured, then steeped, and that used in something else, and then dried again. What remains is a meek tea with meek bitterness and slight, musky, bergamot in the tin.
Brews to a dingy brown as brown can be, as when you steep tea a second or third time.
Flavors: Bitter, Musty
