Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.
A FANTASTIC Assam. Bold and sweet. Very malty. There are some cocoa notes in there too. It has a baked-bread-y kind of taste and texture to it, very hearty. I love this. YUM!

Native Name: Assam Jaat
Origin: Assam, Northeastern India
Plucking Season: Midsummer
Introduction: Made as per The Tao of Tea specifications. This Twisted Leaf Assam is probably a first for this tea growing region. We provided the insight to develop an Assam tea with actual full size tea leaves that are sideways rolled and baked (The Northern Taiwanese Baozhong teas are also made in this rolling manner and known for their clear flavors). As the tea steeps, you can see the entire tea leaf unroll and open up. For those who are wary of brisk teas, this tea doesn’t have a hint of bitterness or briskness.
Flavor Profile: Sweet, malty notes and a deep red colored liquor.
Ingredients: FOP Grade Black Tea Leaves.
