It’s got a strong taste to it. Perfect for blending with milk if you’re into that (I’m not) and even with it out it, a nice breakfast tea or something to drink in the winter. Naturally sweet without being too overpowering. A nice gateway tea for recent loose-leaf converts.

Included this in a taste test with 4 other assam teas I have. This one came out #3 of the 5, ahead of SpecialTeas Rembeng and Adagio Assam Melody, but behind TeaSource’s Panatola and Ramanugger assam teas. I drink my assams black with sweetener. I steep them 2-2 1/2 minutes to keep astringency away. This is a very good Assam tea.
A nice tropical tea that I enjoy from time to time.
In my honest opinion, it’s better iced than cold. Add a little sweetener and it’ll be perfect.
I have been buying steady supplies of this blend from Infusions of Tea for about four years. It may easily be my favorite herbal in the world! Served hot in winter or iced in summer, it reminds me of picking wildflowers. The flavor is slightly tropical, but not cloying. The aroma is floral but clean. Sadly this is only available at Infusions’ single tea shop a few blocks from my former apartment.
