Got this as a sample from Upton. Before steeping smelled bold and a bit earthy to me. Smells very organic brewing- kinda like a forest with a lot of earth after the rain. The sent starts strong and a bit offensive to me but as it brews, it becomes gentler. Flavor is also earthy to me. Initial taste with a bitter quality. I did brew the full duration recommended. May try it next time a bit shorter. After taste is gentler.
So I’m drinking this at work. I’ve got to say, the scent is relaxing walking back to it after leaving the room. As it cools a bit, the initial bite is still strong but the aftertaste is satisfying. I really want to try this with a shorter steep next time. It’s a bit bold for me but holds a lot of promise.

Edit: as it cools, it becomes better. This would likely make a really good iced tea.
Edit 2: I routinely do a second brew on all leaf since I love seeing if it works, even if I expect it won’t. This one worked better then I expected. Ever so slightly softer but surprisingly similar to the first brew. Perhaps a bit more fig like.

So I was curious. I tried a 3rd steep. Much weaker but not in a bad taste way that often happens with repeat black tea steeps. Certainly not as good as the first two but certainly drinkable to me. I’m starting to really like this as a work tea where I can use one serving and get 3 cups. Especially since it handles well cold when I have to leave it for a time.

Smell before steeping surprisingly reminds me of Chinese Dian Hong/Yunnan type teas, with scents that make me think of fig cookies and molasses. When steeped it reminds me of a mix between Keemun and Yunnan varieties of tea. There are also hints that remind me of hot spring mineral water. Nice lingering aftertaste. Quite good. I tried it iced and sugared also, and it took on a nice flower-esque taste. This is the first Columbian tea I have tried, and it is a winner. This came in a sample; If they keep the price down I’d buy more in the future.
