The leaves are extremely black when dry, and this colour is transferred to the tea itself. Very nice, dark oak wood-esque appearance.

This tea has a very interesting flavour profile. You can taste the usual maltiness and hint of honey-like sweetness of an Assam tea, but it is counteracted by a nice wood-like taste. The tea has a very slight bitterness and also mild astingency. The flavours are not as pronounced, making it a somewhat smooth and soft tea, especially for Assam tea.

Not my everyday tea per se, but a tea worth drinking.

Flavors: Astringent, Honey, Malt, Oak
