Drinking this at my mother’s house from her collection. I drink assams with milk and a bit of sugar. Currently waiting for the brew to cool down a little to drink. I probably won’t taste as much as I usually would because I have a weird sort of cold right now that is seriously affecting my throat, although not my nose so much. I just had a piece of pecan pie from the holidays and although I usually like it a lot, it cam off as much too sweet this evening. That’s why I chose this tea rather than all of the Della Terra chocolate teas that I brought from my house.
Drinking this finally, it comes across as kind of weak. A bit bitter with no astringency, possibly because of the milk I put in. A little malty with an oddly flat aftertaste and kind of a rough mouthfeel but that might be the sick talking.
