Perhaps this tea needs to be blended with other teas to reach it’s potential in taste. Today I mixed it with some oolong (Teaopia’s Fine Champagne) and it really added strength to the oolong. And the savory-vitamin taste that I noticed before was very hard to notice in this brew. This could also mean that the Assam SF Budla Beta requires a bit colder water to taste it’s best. I steeped it as if it was pure oolong, disregarding that it was half black tea.
