Dry leaf has a sweet, pleasing aroma.

Brewing as instructed, this tea is very mild, with a smooth flavor and a clear quality. There are mild, dried fruit tones, a bit like a Keemun, but this tea is less earthy than Keemun. Some of the light, rice-like qualities common in some Ceylon teas. Aftertaste is clean. Flavor has some sweetness, more than I have encountered in any other Kenyan tea. Slightly chicken-soup-like.

I tried brewing it longer and using a bit more leaf, and it became more tannic, bitter, leaving an astringent aftertaste.

I recommend following Upton's recommendation of a 3 minute steeping time.

I liked this tea very much, but I found it less rich than Upton's description suggests.
