Oh wow! This might be my new favorite tea. I gave it a sip bare and decided that a bit of cream and turbinado sugar might nicely enhance it. It was such a complex but smooth cup. On first sip I caught hints of cocoa and spice which led to vanilla lingering on the palate. Entirely smooth with no acidity or bitterness. I gave it a second brew and I noticed I didn’t enjoy as much as the first. The second tastes more like a Ceylon. It is much lighter and smoother than the typical assam I’ve had, but I think it would be enjoyable anytime of day.
