Ooooooh this is a good one! While adding the water, I noticed that natural sweet aroma that makes a malty black tea wonderful. It has a much heavier mouth feel and maltier taste (I love both qualities in a great Assam) than Ceylon Sonata from Adagio, my other daily black drinker. I accidentally oversteeped a cup yesterday by two minutes. I was surprised to find that the extended steep time did not make it bitter, but made the tea that much more malty. Excellent! :)

Hey everyone! Tea is one of my biggest passions. Few things in life make me happer than brewing a nice cup (or pot) of tea, while listening to some great music. To me, every cup of tea is like a therapy session. The act of brewing the tea in itself is relaxing, let alone momentarily losing yourself in the colors, aromas and tastes that great tea can offer. I welcome comments or points of chit chat on my reviews, so feel free to concur, dispute, or simply say hi in the commentos :)

Cheers all,



Randolph, MA
