I had it when I visited Ann Arbor in October and loved it then, but then the friend who I was visiting bought me some for Christmas and it was excellent. It’s a lovely strong tea, a bit like assam and I’d recommend it to anyone

Is it malty with notes of cocoa like many Assams?

I wish I could tell you. I’m really not good at recognising flavours or describing what I am drinking. But to me it tastes a lot like assam, so it must be malty – after all, everyone puts assam and maltiness together. As for the cocoa, I’ll have to try it again and let you know

Bio

I finished being a student in 2008 and began working in The North, where “tea” means “evening meal” which confuses me regularly. I love encouraging people to try new teas, but when I’m not doing that, I play the trombone, play some sport (badly) and socialise
