Commercial Description

...lovely deep-dark tea made from twisted black, copper, and mahogany leaves featuring abundant golden tips (indicating quality). This tea’s classic nuances of raisins, figs, dry grass, tobacco, and hardwood lead to a malty finish of fleeting herbs and caramelized nuts...

While the dry leaves have a more mildly fruity generic black tea sort of smell, the brewed tea has a wonderfully sweet aroma of figs and raisins, and a similar taste. It's actually hard to taste anything else because of the strength of those notes: there's a background earthiness or something to add some substance and body, preventing it from tasting like pure fruit juice, but I can't identify any specific flavors aside from the fruit. This isn't a complex tea that evolves from one note to the next in your mouth. It's a dried fruit bomb, and I love it. Octavia's online pricing is rather high for a broken leaf Assam, even one this good, but if you find it being sold by the ounce somewhere at a lower price, I highly recommend it.
