I’d been wanting to try this one for a good long time, so huge thanks to Angrboda for sharing this with me!
This is a big, bold, beautiful cup. It’s beautifully malty, with a really distinctive assam flavour — there’s no mistaking this one! I was half expecting it to be a bit astringent and rough around the edges, but it’s not like that at all. It’s not perfectly smooth in the honeyed way that some teas have, but it’s pretty typical for an assam. There’s certainly plenty of flavour, and it’s wonderfully suited to my big tea mug, brewed long and strong, and with a splash of milk added. I can’t say I’ve enjoyed another assam quite as much as this one for a good long time!
