The base flavor is still different than a plain black tea -- it's kind of similar to pu-erh, but it doesn't match any pu-erh I've tried to date. I want to know what that base flavor is -- whether it's spices or fermentation/etc.

I think they weren't supposed to say that, though, as the post was later taken down... I don't know if there are also added spices or not.
