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 moved from the UK to Australia in 2015. I’ve had a fascination with tea since university, and like to try lots of different types. My preference is for real tea over other infusions: green tea, oolong and black, including flavoured varieties. I love encouraging people to try new teas. I also play the trombone.
Ratings:
>90: Some of the best I’ve had so far.
80-90: I love this tea, likely to buy again
70-80: Good tea. Most tea in my cupboard is in this category because it’s fine to drink it all day!
50-70: I’d drink it if it was offered to me, and I’ll drink what’s in the cupboard, but I’m unlikely to buy it again.
