Right, had two cups of this yesterday – one as a “morning tea”, with milk and sugar, and one in the evening, plain. This extremely expensive Assam does not take milk and sugar well. It is, however, pretty good plain. There is the characteristic malty, slightly woodsy taste of Assam, but without any astringency. It reminds me of Postcard Teas Golden Tips Assam, but Postcard Teas Assam is better – sweeter, maltier, better balanced, and it can stand up to milk.
In a world without Postcard Teas Golden Tips Assam, where this tea costs about half its price (which would put it at Verdant Tea prices – i.e. not cheap at all), I would recommend this tea. At it is, it doesn’t get a recommendation. Invest your money elsewhere.

It’s an expensive tea. London Harrods also sell Dikom estate Assam in their golden tin series, but maybe this one is higher level. I got 50g, steeped a little amount in half cup of hot water (can’t get hot enough water in my office so might try another temp next time).
It has the dark amber colour of Assam tea, also the malty, or say a bit mature, woody or earthy smell of Assam. Other than that, it almost tastes like a very good Darjeeling 2nd flush: sweet and smooth, almost no astrigency, and a nice ‘remain taste’ in mouth and throat. The remain taste is obviously Assam though.
I didn’t drink it with sugar and milk, and I wouldn’t want to put them in this tea. It’s tasty enough to drink it alone, and I don’t think milk will do much good for this quite luxury tea.
