I could not quite decide what tea to have, nothing seemed right, this was more or less like a chance choice. And oh wow, I had been so unfair to this tea, it can be so so nice, I keep forgetting how very nice it can be.
I used a generous helping for a cup, very hot water (just a minute or two after boiling) and did not let it steep too much, I was making up for it with tea quantity, and added just a little smidgeon of sugar. I got the caramel, the vanilla and cocoa notes nice and clear, but underneath it all a very nice tea (assam? I am seriously revising my opinion on it) make it TEA. Lovely, why do I keep overlooking this?
A warning, lovely as this is, it can turn absolutely vile if you let it steep too long.
