Tea was prepared with milk and sugar to sweeten.
Malty and sweet, even before sugar. Little to no aftertaste. Only slightly astringent. Tea works well with milk to complement maltiness. Overall refreshing, but somewhat bland beyond the first few sips. Second cup was much the same.

Aww, I hate when the taste drops off after a few sips. Or worse, when the tannins build up and it gets all dry in your mouth. Cheap green tea does that.

Indeed; this tea was at least mostly lacking in tannins, so it never got anywhere near being dry or astringent. Of course, the milk probably helped there.
