Okay, so here's the thing with this tea: I bet it's a great example of the kind of tea that it is. It has the bitterness of black tea, but in a way that feels more blended/smooth than most and gives it body. The primary other flavor I seem to identify in this robust tea is a raisin-like aroma and taste, and it has a rather "juicy" mouthfeel.

I also think it tastes like a higher quality version of a tea like Lipton's (emphasis on the higher quality) brewed very strong. Though that's going based on memory from awhile ago.

In the end, I'd call this a great tea that isn't suited to my palate, but that I could imagine black tea fans enjoying a lot.
