This is called Leaf Tea, but it looks like any other tea bag with fannings in it to me. This is a very mild assam tea with no bitterness or astringency. It has a slight malty smell but just doesn’t taste like an assam to me. I would call this a drinkable tea as it has nearly no taste. Its Aussie grown and I would love to try some real leaf tea from there, but this tea just doesn’t make the grade for me. Next time I’m going to try 2 tea bags and see if I can make it a little stronger.
