Haven’t had this one since I reviewed it ages ago, and so I’m revisiting it tonight. Dry, the leaves smell almost chocolate like! I didn’t notice that before and it made me smile as I scooped it out of the tin. Once brewed the broth is a beautiful colour, almost that of a dark brown brandy with just hints of red notes. I’d seriously serve this just because it looks so pretty.

First impressions on first sip is . . malt. Definite strong malt although still a light broth. It’s interestingly unique that way to me. As I sip a bit more I get almost . . barley? Oh, and there is the astringency I remember from last time.

If you like Assams, this is definitely a great tea to try. I’m offering samples if anyone’s interested!

Bio

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.

My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
