I love assam and yunnan teas. This is a mix of the two and yes I love it. This tea is mellow and smooth, no bitterness or astringency that I can find. It has a wine like quality to it. I wish I could find the notes that others have found with this tea, I’m looking, but I can’t. I don’t think my taste buds are that refined as yet. Too much espresso in earlier years I expect. Next time I order this tea it won’t be a sample. I do have assam and yunnan teas and I may try to mix them myself.
