I don’t drink many black teas these days, but this one is quite nice. Rich, golden/amber color to the liquor and the tea itself has beautiful black and golden hues. I brewed this one in a bottom-draining tea steeper, for 4 minutes with water just boiling.

Sweet, lightly malted, aroma which carries through into the cup. I can kinda sense the sweet potato that they mention, but it’s very light. Great texture and balance.
