This is a solid, but standard, Assam. Something like a Thomas Sampson without some of the pastry-like syrupy notes. Still a very good morning tea, I had a nice cup of it today.
I wasn’t really expecting this to be as good as it is. I threw it into my order when I got those tea/fruit-flavored gummi bears that were on Steepster Select a while back, just hoping to get some more experience with Assams. But it’s actually a great cup with milk and sugar.
If I had to compare it to some other highly-ranked teas, I would mention The Simple Leaf’s Amor and A&D’s Thomas Sampson. This beats Amor and comes close to Thomas, IMO.
