It remains malty while retaining some light floral qualities, although it’s not particularly fragrant.

Some creaminess and astringency develops in later steeps.

Medium mouthfeel, and some astringency in the flavor profile.

It brews a medium amber colored broth, somewhat lighter than a more ordinary black tea.

Taste-wise, it has a pretty typical bud-heavy black tea taste.
