This tea has a much greener character, to the point it's barely recognizable as a "black tea", except for some lingering tones in the aftertaste. The cup is a gold color like a darker green tea or lighter oolong. Clean, fresh, a bit mild...I can see what Upton says about the notes of citrus and mint.

Extremely reasonable price for a tea of this complexity. I found Upton's brewing recommendations to work well...you can get away with brewing a little longer and using a little less leaf. This is a smooth tea and it does not acquire many unpleasant qualities if steeped a bit longer.
