I tried this on my way to work this morning. It was good! very much like the Budla only stronger… a tad bitter, maltier, and bolder however I don’t get nearly as much “marshmallow”.
Oh and it didn’t set my jitters off this time, which I thought was odd since I’d eaten a tiny breakfast so I’m wondering if there is less caffeine in this brew? I know that bolder coffees are roasted more, and thus have less of the stimulant in them, so perhaps tea follows the same principle. Who knows? (someone reading this, I am sure haha)
Anyhow, I’m not sure which I prefer between this and Budla. I’d like to try the DT counterpart to compare before really passing any judgment on it.
This organic Black Assam comes from the small Banaspaty Tea Estate in Northeast India. Our Assam Banaspaty is a first flush Fine Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe (FTGFOP-1), with a rich, malty and full bodied flavour . If you like Irish Breakfast tea, you are sure to enjoy this Assam.
