Once steeping the tea takes on a rich nuttiness that mixes well with the underlying maltiness and brightness. I have to admit this tea smells delightful and I cannot wait to drink it!
I decided to brew this British style, meaning a touch of sugar and a splash of cream. A very rich taste with no bitterness or astringency. This is a wonderful tea to wake up with, so I feel a bit bad for drinking it late in the evening instead of first thing in the morning. This tea is exquisitely smooth and excellently blended, the taste is malty and mildly sweet. Delicious!
