Very good tea with slightly malty assam notes, yet not really assam-like. Hard to describe. A bit expensive to me, since I like other teas better that are cheaper, but I’d drink it any time. Did mine in a typical mesh infuser, 21oz boiling water in Adagio personaliTEA teapot, 2 tablespoons of tea, maybe 3 minutes. I accidentally left it about 7 minutes the other day and it did NOT GET BITTER!! In fact it was better than I’d remembered…

Started out on Salada, moved onto Earl Grey and English Breakfast, discovered Lady Grey and Irish Breakfast, then began loose leafs with a green Earl Grey from twinings followed years later by Adagio’s ingenuitea pot and a sampler. I’ve been hooked since.
