This is really a gorgeous black tea with the leaves ranging from a honey gold to a dark chocolate. The leaves are rather large for a black tea so I do recommend weighing out the tea leaves. They don't really have much of an aroma when dry.
Following the suggestions on the package, I set it up to steep using 200 degree water and a time of 2 minutes. The resulting liquor is fairly light for a black tea and is a light golden brown. It now has a fragrance of sweet potatoes and tobacco.
This tea is a real treat. With a heavier mouth feel, this tea has a natural sweetness like clover honey. I am also have to pick up nuances of yams and just a hint of malt. This is a very smooth tea without any astringency and bitterness even though I did let it over-steep the second time around.
You do pay more for this tea but when you consider that it can be resteeped up to three times, it is a really good buy. I very much enjoyed this delightful tea and have it on my list for the next time I place an order.
