From TeaSource

This is a beautiful, fine, wiry leaf with thin strands of silver leaf throughout. It has a incredibly rich and spicy aroma. This tea steeps up full-bodied, rich and thick, with a very complex flavor profile that includes a spicy licoricy note, hints of ripe fruit, and a hint of a dark caramel note.

I found this OK—but nothing special. I found it a very basic tea—but I should mention that’s how I’ve felt about all Ceylons I’ve tried to date. To me they just don’t have as much personality as Indian or Chinese black teas. However, my aunt who I share these teas with tends to love the basic teas and didn’t care for this one—she said for a black tea, it felt “light” to her. The package label describes it as “medium-bodied” and it does tend to seem lighter to me than the black teas we’ve enjoyed—although I did enjoy this—enough to drink, not enough to order again given the many alternatives we enjoy much more.

Probably the best black tea I’ve had in a while.
