This is bold and smooth all at the same time. It’s very ‘clean’ for a bold black tea. It’s a Goodie, indeed! I can see why it won an award!

Hi. How would you rate this tea for maltiness? I love a good malty assam. However some have a rather astringent/bitter quality that overpowers. My favorite assam was a special reserve assam I got from TeaSource in MN. They can’t seem to get it anymore. So I’m intrigued this place has one of similar name and looks similar and sounds similar. It was nice and malty with little astringency when steeped less than 3 minutes.

I tend to oversteep and/or over heap my loose leaf amount for the infusion. I like teas strong, usually. This one was about semi to ,medium for malty…not the maltiest I have had…but still nice. I didn’t find it bitter even if oversteeped…it’s forgiving, at least for me it was/is.

Thanks! Guess I’m now tempted to ask what is the maltiest assam you’ve found?
