Tonight’s another one of those nights that I’m like, “To hell with the caffeine! I’m having me a nice black tea before bed!”
Okay. So this is my second or third time on this tea, so I think I’ve finally gotten enough of a feel to do a review.
Once again, this is my first assam. I really like it. It’s got a deep, warm, “clear” flavor profile. You know how some malty teas taste opaque? This one tastes clear. The honey flavor is definitely there. There’s a mite of astringency on the second infusion, but I had the first infusion several hours ago so I don’t remember how astringent that one was. Not very. It’s a black tea that’s cleansing and comforting at the same time. Upping the rating.
