Yunnans and Assams are two of my favorite black teas, so I was eagerly looking forward to trying this tea. I’m happy to report, I was not disappointed. This is a full-bodied, yet refined, breakfast tea. Strong and smooth, with very little astringency. Adding a pinch of sweetener enhanced the flavor instead of covering it up. This is what a classic black tea is supposed to taste like. Satisfying and flavorful. I enjoyed it very much and look forward to my next cup.
