I’ve already reviewed this one, so for more detailed info see my first post. But I enjoy this tea so much that I have to reiterate how good it is. It is so rich and smooth, and doesn’t have the leafy bite that makes some other black teas so sensitive to leaf quantity and especially steep time. This is definitely in my top 3 black teas. Mountain Malt is my #1, but even that is easier to oversteep or overleaf. My girlfriend also considers this one of her favorite black teas.
I use 1 gram of leaves per 5 ounces of water for this and most other Assams – I have never had a bad cup when I measured the leaf quantity carefully. There are some $10 pocket scales on eBay that are accurate to 0.1 gram, perfect for measuring this sort of thing. I recommend picking one up.
