This first flush is amber in coloring; very light for a black tea. The scent is very nice kind of make me think of jasmine tea and not really a black tea.

I had this in the morning to start my day and now very late in the day and no jitters as I tend to get with caffeinated teas. I am assuming there is more caffeine in this sampler as opposed to a green tea.

It is not a smoky tea at all, or full bodied as in roasted. So it is a black tea tasting like mildly green tea, very soft to the palette and sweet to the senses.

I like to drink tea less so than when I was aptly reviewing teas. I find that I like less and less of things as I age. I am a somber spirit who prays daily to not be at all. Thank you Steepster for all that you do to enrich tea drinkers.
