a great tea :D
when i smell the tea bag dry, i smell mustyness and spices. typical of a black tea.
when i smell the tea bag wet, the smell is intensified.
when i smell the brewed tea, it smells musty like a black tea should.
when i taste the brewed tea, i taste a tad bit of chocolate and a tiny amount of spicyness.
the brewed tea color is dark amber to chocolate brown.
i rate this tea a 80 because it tastes good. however, im not much for straight black teas, unless its lapsang souchong.
many thanks to hyson tea co. for this free sample
