My sample which I have been enjoying over the past week or so is delicious both hot and iced. The dry leaves give off a peppery scent and are a dark brown with some golden tips. Once brewed the liquor is a golden brown with a piney peppery aroma. It tastes as though it has been lightly smoked with a bit of a bite from the pepper. It has a medium mouth feel and is very smooth without the dryness or astringency that I was expecting from the aroma when hot. When it is served as iced tea there is a touch of astringency at the end of each drink.
While I did find this tea to be delicious it won't be going on my list to purchase as I have found other black teas from this vendor that I prefer.
