Malty! Even just opening the sample, it simply goes boom with malt. It’s sorta fun.

My thought, since I’m using my whole sample on one big ole cup, was to drink half the cup with no additives, then add a little milk and sugar so I could compare how it holds up. Yeah, that plan lasted all of one sip. Because one sip with no additives? Bitter bitter bitter. Oh help. No no no. I need half & half and sugar in this one. NEED IT.

A dash of additives later… Oh, so much better. It’s a little like a biscuit covered in honey or maybe light Karo syrup. It’s not a homemade biscuit, though, maybe a frozen one. Yeah, that seems about right. I don’t think I was heavy handed with the half & half, but I can taste it through the tea every so often, a warm creamy milk taste that steps in front of the tea for a flash. So while adding half & half doesn’t make it taste like horrible, thin cardboard as it does in some teas (yes, I’m looking at you, Kenya Kaproret), perhaps this one doesn’t quite hold up to milk that well. Though the more I sip, the more I enjoy that milky taste popping up.

It’s a nice morning tea but it doesn’t quite wow me. It strikes me as a good daily Assam – nice, but not so nice that you feel you need a semi-special occasion to have some. It’s got a fairly nice body to it. It does (in my view) need additives, but I’m okay with that because 9 out of 10 mornings I need additives, too. I could see myself picking up a bit of this if I were already getting something at the Jade Teapot and I was running low on breakfast-ish teas, but I don’t think I’d seek this one out.

I love how specific this description is. Frozen biscuit covered in light Karo syrup. I know exactly what you mean.

Yay! I kind of half anticipated a comment of “What the heck is Karo syrup?” Hehe!

My first real cup of tea since getting back from vacation and a business trip. Not a bad way to jump back in! My pot brewed up dark – I added my entire sample to my zarafina, and I think I should have cut it back.

The flavor is smooth yet high in tannin, and has a slightly drying mouthfeel. This may be because of too much tea leaf, but I didn’t mind.

Yummy, dark, and smooth. A good morning, wake-you-up tea.

I like this a lot! When I added sugar to it, it almost brought out a taffy-like taste. The aroma matched the taste quite well, which I liked. I think this would make a perfect cup of tea to be sipping on while relaxing in the morning or afternoon.

This was a sample from Jade Teapot. A very smooth cup of tea. I’m more used to the CTC Assams I drink with milk, but I liked this straight. It was a little mild to have with my ginger cardamom scone. I wasn’t aware that it can be steeped multiple times, which is a plus. I usually don’t re-steep my tea except for oolongs, but I think I’ll try and see how I like it. Overall this was a pleasant cup of tea.
