Dry Leaf: Has a malty smell with a nice sweet aroma.
Wet Leaf: I get a malty maybe even a toasty aroma with a sweet aroma.
Liquor: Has a dark amber and a nice brightness I would say.
Taste: I get a maltiness with a bit of sweetness. The broth has a little heaviness to it with a dryness. Also, I get a raisin flavor in the after taste.

This tea is okay. It has chocolaty aroma. It tastes kind of like cereal, and maybe that's a sign of it being a bit stale, I don't know. I added cream and sugar.

I'm always complaining about black teas have a strong bitter taste so I really liked that this tea was smooth and mild. I never understood how a tea could be "bready" but this tea really does smell like bread! I really enjoyed drinking it and would recommend it to anyone who thinks Black Tea is too strong.

I really like this one, especially after drinking it on multiple occasions.

This black (red) tea was only vaguely similar to others from China that I've tried; it was quite different from anything I have tried yet. Its aroma was more like Yunnan teas than anything else, but much milder and smoother, and with a very different flavor and finish.

Brews a rich, dark cup. Deep and very full-bodied, with a muted flavor. Aroma is mostly of dried fruit, with a bready quality. Perhaps a bit malty too, but without the edgy qualities of Assam. Finish leaves sweetness and some interesting complexities, like a suggestion of caramel.

I found this tea grew on me. The first time I drank it, I was relatively unimpressed, but as I brewed it a second and then third time, I found that I was liking it more each time.

It is subtle, smooth, and very pleasing. Very reasonable price!
