Immediatly reminds the liquorice root, but in more woody way. The bitterness is totally hidden (if you are use to drink tea, or coffee, without sugar), with a smooth, round taste: not "an aggressive" tea. Medium/light body with a final totally on wood and liquorice with a hint of apple peel (the only bitter note of this tea).

My score is 8.5/10
