This tea smells like a strong black tea.
This tea tastes very rich, and has a hint of maltyness. It has a very fresh taste to it. I made this pot pretty strong (I needed an afternoon pick-me-up). About mid-sip, I hit a bit of a bitter note (which might have something to do with how strong I made it), but it quickly fades away.
I was in the mood for a straight black tea, and this hit the spot.
