While I usually don’t like flavored teas, this is very enjoyable. It has a good black tea base and wonderfully aromatic flavors.

Enjoying this very much again. It has wonderful color, nice malty flavor, and a light astringency. I’m drinking it in a 1660 LONDON tea tasting cup and it seems to bring out more depth than my previous tastings.

This is great. I don’t often drink green teas and generally don’t like them nearly as much as Assams, especially. This is a top-notch tea and one of the best I’ve ever had. I got several infusions from it. The second was still lovely but the following three were not as spectacular.

I tend to like Assam teas and normally don’t like flowering teas but this is excellent. This tea is really good and has a beautiful nose! The tea flavor is deep and luscious.

I brewed this tea for five minutes this morning and it improved substantially. It is really a good Assam tea.

Bio

I’m a long-time tea drinker with experience mostly with tea bags and lots of iced tea. In early 2011, I purchased a Breville tea maker and started trying several loose leaf teas.

I’m enjoying learning more about teas and developing my favorites. I’ve discovered that the Breville makes a great cup of tea and suspect I enjoy most of the teas I’ve tried much more because of the quality of tea the Breville brews.
