First of all, great customer service from this company.

Man this tea smells good in the bag, has a very clean, fresh character.

On steeping it has the classic tea scent, yet it also has notes that remind me of pumpkin, honey, brown sugar, and general vegetal scents.

Taste: Not being the biggest fan of Assam teas, I was skeptical before I tried it, but this is the best Assam I’ve had thus far. Actually, this is one of the best teas I’ve had in general. Smooth and malty. A bit of natural sweetness. Just a slight hint of vegetal and mineral notes. Pretty clean finish, although now that I’m done with the cup there is a nice lingering aftertaste that makes me want more.

It doesn’t need sugar, but I made a second steep and added some out of curiosity, and the tea takes on a nice roasted caramel taste.

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a youngin’, as a way of relaxing before bed. I ventured out from bagged, mass produced tea when I tried some loose leaf Earl Grey at the old man’s house years back. I’m still not too proud for the occasional bagged stuff, saving my snobbery for hard to find craft beer.

I gravitate towards Chinese black-tea varieties, Japanese greens, unflavored oolongs from wherever, and the occasional “I cant sleep” type of herbal teas. I signed up so I can keep track of the teas I’ve tried, and what I want to keep in my cupboard on the regular.
