"Excellent appearance with plenty of golden tips. Low astringency leading to a very rich and smooth mouth feel. Toasty, malty and honey flavors with and a hint of cocoa in the background. I bought this tea for special occasion, but I drink it all the time! Top Shelf!" Professor of Tea

"This is an unusual tea. A bold leaf that produces sweet flavors of barley. Highly malted. I am not normally a milk + sugar guy, but this is excellent with both. Not the most sophisticated tea, with one predominant flavor, but quite enjoyable."
