This is a great breakfast tea. Its brisk and malty with only slight bitterness and astringency. I’m still trying to figure out why Mountain Malt only took 3 minutes of steeping while this one takes 5 minutes and still doesn’t have the strength or chewiness. Maybe it has to do with the oxidation or something. Both teas are BPS1 and handmade. Hopefully someone reading this with more tea knowledge than myself can answer this for me. Still this is a nice tea.
