I fear that I got a little too excited about finally trying this tea that I overdid it with the measuring, because it’s quite strong. Still good, but with it this strong, some of the Assam’s harsher qualities emerge as it is a bit on the bitter side. So, I will have to wait until I taste it again (tomorrow!) before I offer a rating.
I added some steamed milk to make a latte, and the milk has curbed some of the harshness. The other elements in this tea taste wonderful, I taste the caramel and the vanilla tones, as well as the zesty spice. But, I still want to wait until tomorrow before I’m able to rate it.
