"This has a nice look to it with a mix of dark and blond leaf. The aroma in the pouch is very mild compared to something like Kenilworth Estate TC85D for example. It is pricy and worth a purchase if you have tasted others first."

"A unique tea, very much worth the price. Leaves are blacker than many Ceylons & highly aromatic with notes of fig. Superb in the cup: sweet & rich with a tippy edge. 5-minute brew brings out full flavor."
