I’m sitting here enjoying a pot of this for breakfast while I plan today’s adventure.
The liquor is a rich, deep burgundy brown, and smells slightly sweet and malty. It actually reminds me a lot of the Empress’ signature blend, but with more Assam.
It even tastes like that too. I get more of the maltiness and it leaves a pleasant malty oaky aftertaste. I haven’t tried this with milk and/or sugar yet, but I’m sure it would taste very similar to the Empress signature blend.
Better than I expected. A good tea to grab in the morning when you’re in a hurry and don’t want to have to deal with the mess of loose tea leaves. I kind of feel like this should get a higher rating than the Empress since I’m preferring the more dominant Assam in this, but for now, I’ll rate them almost the same until I try this one with milk and sugar. That’ll be the real test.
