Not malty or sweet enough for my taste. I purchased a first flush single estate Assam from the Tea Table some years ago, and was haunted (and probably spoiled forever) by the robust, muscular sweetness of its cup. This is not that Assam. It is, however, delicious as a good everyday brew. If you want a tea to convert inveterate coffee drinkers, try their Tippy Golden Assam Mangalam instead.
