I'm surprised that this was an OP - impressive! I agree with Alex, definitely the best OP I've had, ridiculously complex for such a mainstream style.

I definitely noticed a nice roasted taste to the tea and an extremely unexpected subtle vegetable taste, reminiscent of some of my favorite oolongs. The vegetable taste was apparent just as I was swallowed, at the roof of my mouth.

Wonderfully smooth texture and somewhat of a lemon smell to the dried leaf.

I was able to get two really good brews out of this tea, both were full of flavor.

This is a fantastic tea, I can't wait to have more!

Purchased at Teehaus Bachfischer's storefront in Regensburg, Germany.

Wow, this tea is amazing! Definitely the best Orange Pekoe grade tea I've ever tried...and competes with the best of the best, things with those long labels like TGFOP and FTGFOP and the like.

Dry leaf, dark, wiry, and nondescript looking, has a mild aroma very different from most black teas, with toasty qualities, suggesting caramel, fruit, and a hint of smoke.

Brews up a very smooth cup...exceptionally smooth, with one of the most pleasing, subtle flavors of any tea. Aroma has a hint of muscatel grape, like Darjeelings, but is deeper, with smoky notes, dried fruit, caramel, toast, and a hint of wintergreen. Reminds me a lot of the Royal Tajiri Tea sold by Royal Tea of Kenya. When brewed more mildly, using a short steeping and less leaf, I get vegetal notes, flowers, and honey.

Flavor is naturally sweet, with low sourness and only a hint of bitterness. Just enough astringency to impart a pleasant body.

Brews multiple infusions gracefully, one of the best black teas in this regard.

Truly exceptional. And the price is a steal. I'm completely blown away, to see the low price and that this is only marked as OP = orange pekoe grade. And it's organic certified too!
