I love this tea. The leaves unfurl to these beautiful, big, dark chocolate leaves on steeping. It’s malty, smooth, and complex with layers of flavor.
I can’t say that I’ve ever perceived cinnamon in my tastings, but I do seem to always get a taste or mouthfeel of caramel – particularly after I swallow.
It’s so wonderful that I can hardly believe I’m not drinking a flavored tea. This is far and away the best assam I’ve ever tasted.
