I’ve been drinking a bit of this since Christmas but never got around to reviewing it. This was part of my Black Friday hoard, I got one of each tea to try and ended up doubling up on this one as my cupboard doesn’t have many nice blacks. I thought it was worth the try anyway, I love the tins.
It has a beautiful red/brown colour once steeped with a thick malted scent. I am partial to a nice pot of Assam and by smell alone you can tell this would be a treat.
The is moderately malted with some honeyed sweetness and thick spicy elements. Also rather dry in after taste but not unbearably so. Though it is rich it’s also very smooth and easily drinkable. Also a little smoky in the after taste.
I really do like this one, glad I took the chance and got two tins worth. Assam is usually a morning or early afternoon style tea for me but this one I could drink throughout.
