This is a very nice robust, brisk, and malty tea. You can smell the assam tea in it and it really has a kick to it. I’m really glad I only steeped for 3 minutes. I have a feeling that you could stand a spoon up in it at 5 minutes. I’m getting no bitterness and a touch of astringency. This would make a very good breakfast tea and I like it a lot.
East Fresian won “Best in Class” at the World Tea Championship in the breakfast tea category! Famous strong, full-bodied blend of tippy Assams, Sumatra, and Java teas. Great alternative to English Breakfast. Great with milk and sugar. Use one teaspoon per cup and steep in freshly boiled water for 3-5 minutes.
