From Teabox

A bold, brisk tea from the Kangra district with a slight vegetal taste, and a nutty aroma that is enriched with floral and spicy undertones.
Adventurous sipping! A unique tea from the legendary (Kim, by Rudyard Kipling) Kangra District, that lies 1,500+m above sea level in Northwest India. This tea’s strong suite is the complex, appealing aroma given off by a lovely infusion. Every cup yields a complex blend of flavours and aromas that simulates, but does not duplicate, that of Darjeeling. Definitely a creditable effort from a region that used to make mostly green teas for several years that were exported to the Middle East!

A very unusual tea. It has a lot of green in it, and brews and tastes to me more like a green tea than a black, as the other reviewer mentioned. It also has a small unpleasant bitterness. I think the next time I brew it, I will make it like a green tea with a lower temperature.

The smell is vegetal and aromatic. The taste is grassy, vegetal, and earthy. I like it, I just don’t like bitter aftertaste, so will have to experiment with it and do another tasting note. Ordered more than a sample of this, so will have to experiment with it in different ways.

This is supposed to be a black tea. It looks like a green tea, it smells like a green tea, and it comes from an estate that specializes in green tea. Does it taste like green tea?
Kinda.
It is very vegetal, with a strong perfume-y element as well, that makes it almost bitter. I brewed it as recommended and chucked the cup after three sips. This is not for me. It has all the elements of green tea that I tend to not enjoy, without the sweetness of green tea.
First true disappointment from Teabox.
