An invigorating mid-afternoon pick-me-up. The flavor is not overpowering or spicy. It’s actually quite smooth and refreshing. I attempted to steep it a second time, but didn’t get much out of it. Oh well, still very tasty. I also own the Harney & Sons Earl Grey. It might be my imagination, but both teas I have by this company seem much more mellow than I was expecting. The tins are lovely though.
