This one certainly didn’t last long :)
SIPDOWN!

This is incredibly malty and rich. The first infusion was slightly astringent but still tasty for those who enjoy a strong black tea! The 2nd infusion was also nice. Still malty but not astringent…and still strong! YAY!

Ahhhhmazing! This is so good. Robust, malty, rich, and I can really taste the freshness of this tea. An OUTSTANDING Assam!

It is very smooth, rich, and a pleasant caramel-like sweet undertone. There is a hint of bitterness toward the middle of the sip, but it isn’t that “Oops, I overbrewed the Assam” type of bitterness, more of a savory tone that gives the cup interest and depth.

Absolutely fabulous Assam.

The dry leaf looks just as good as in the photo …. generously studded with golden tips. I used 2 tsp of this to 12 ounces of water, steeped 5 min, for a very effective wake-up potion. Long before any caffeine effect, the brisk, piquant flavor had focused my attention. If it weren’t for the full body and plenty of malty sweetness, the bitter kick would have been overwhelming. It was a perfect foil for buttery biscuits and sweet jam. Later, I made a second mug quite sweet and milky for sipping solo. This is a good example of distinctive “Assam black” qualities, and the price was reasonable enough that I can make some sample packets for my tea meetup group.
