The broken leaves are a nice reddish brown when infused (however, there are bits of stem included, no tips here). The aroma is strong and inviting. The liquor is a nice deep reddish brown color like the old "Indian Brown" from the crayon box. The tea is of medium body, is smooth, and malty. It finishes with a slight "bite" on the back of the tongue. I first steeped this tea according to their directions- 2-3 minutes. If you like your tea a bit stronger go for 4 minutes. This tea would hold up very well with milk but is excellent without. A fine representation of a Ceylon tea. Excellent value for the price.
