Found this tea to be pleasant and mild. It was mellow and enjoyable. Less showy than some other stronger summer blacks which i tend to prefer, but very nice.
I bought this tea for my husband and he loves it! He follows the brewing instructions carefully and is becoming quite the expert. I look forward to getting him more of this tea and trying some of the others.
This tea has a wonderful aroma and a smooth taste. Just lovely!
