The dry leaves have not much scent at all, but once brewed it smells very nice. I find that there’s something sweet and sugary about the smell, even a bit fruity. It smells somehow familiar. What is that??
The taste is not so sweet, very malty as I believe Assams are known to be. Somehow it seems astringent without being mouth-drying. I liked the Nepal black more, but this is nice. A good tea for a rainy day maybe.

University student and relatively new tea convert. It all started several months ago when my mom bought me a tin of The Glow from David’s. Now I want to try ALL THE TEAS.

If you know of any excellent tea places around downtown Toronto, let me know! I’ve found a few but am always looking for more.
