This tea smells amazing! Like caramel or toffee, so sweet with a slight dark twang. My husband said bonfire toffee so we both agreed which is rare. One of the nicest smelling black teas imaginable. Nothing like the Assam that I was expecting.
The leaves are dark brown/black and are long yet twisted. They are very light.
Once steeped the tea is red brown in colour and has that beautiful toffee scent, this time with added malt and rock sugar.
It taste matches the smell, it’s light with sweet malt and toffee flavours that unfurl on the tongue in the after taste. Since it’s light there is a cleanness to it’s taste and that adds to the sweetness.
Further steeps reveal no astringency or richness but the sweet toffee flavour translates well through the later steeps.
Fantastic black tea, light yet with so much flavour that it leaves me completely satisfied. Husband was happy with this one too. For the price this is excellent.
