I have been waiting forever to try this tea. I have wanted to try A and D for a long time but their tins are so large, I didn’t want to make a purchase before trying. Thank you Sil for helping me out on this one!
Assam is my all time favorite straight black tea. It doesn’t matter how it has been processed and whether it is loose leaf or bagged, it is always the best.
This tea is delicious. It is bold but still smooth. There is only a very mild malt-like taste to it, also a slight roasty flavour. It is medium thickness. I am only getting a very, very mild aftertaste and is not astringent at all. There is a slight natural sweetness to the tea.
Definitely worth the wait to try this tea. Now I am going to try to wait for another sale to pick some of this up, and most likely get some of their other teas too!
