drank Mountain Malt by The Simple Leaf
429 tasting notes

This tea is just fantastic, the biscuit smell just makes my mouth water. The broken rolled leaves unfurl and steep into a bright amber tea. Its brisk, robust, and malty without being bitter but has the astringency of a very good assam tea. I’m trying to talk my wife into letting me buy a pound next time as my one ounce sample isn’t lasting very long.

Biscuit and malt and bitter-less? I have to get this!

Dan

@Stephanie: As long as you do not over steep, I only steep this tea for 3 minutes.

Yes, I thought it was impossible at first but MM can be bitter if you overdo it. I have had several perfect cups, though, so you just have to pay attention.
