When I first opened the bag, I was hit with a very sweet, almost fake tea fragrance. The contents also didn’t look like tea leaves. Instead, the bag contained small dried particles similar to instant coffee.

This brewed to a deep black cup of tea. OMG, this stuff is strong! I’m not a cream and sugar guy, but this one almost needs it- it packs a wallop! The tea is of medium body and the astringency is moderate but it becomes more pronounced in a lingering aftertaste.

While it’s one of the oddest looking teas I’ve ever had, it’s really not bad. It’s a good first cup as it literally kicks you into gear but some may prefer to add a sweetener.

Is this just a CTC British tea, most likely heavy on the Assam? Or something else?

They do have the typical “grape nuts” nugget shape, so you’re probably right. However, while the body was fair, I didn’t get a lot of malt. The astringency was rather high especially on the finish.
