This selection was a straight forward black tea. Nothing fancy or extraordinary but sometimes that is a good thing. I’m of the opinion that not every tea needs to be a mind-blowing kind of good. It was mild and sweet with a hint of spiciness. It also had just the right amount of astringency, perfect to use as a daily drinker. It stood up fairly well to a second steeping but I think that a third would be pushing it. I also tried this tea in a gaiwan which brought out the flavors a bit more as is to be expected. I would definitely recommend this tea.
