This has become one of the staples in my cupboard over the past year. It is one of those highly adaptable teas that seems to appeal equally to friends who are tea purists, and those who just want a "good cuppa' tea" as well.

Bold, smooth, slight malty flavor with a lingering caramel aftertaste. A very nice balance of earthiness with very light astringency. Brews up into a beautiful dark amber color after the recommended 4 to 5 minute steep.

Although I usually drink my teas unsweetened, I have had a touch of agave nectar in this one on occasion and it actually enhances the flavors very nicely.
