Tea of the morning here. I notice I am sleeping a bit better through the night. Yesterday I was trying to prop myself up with various pillows and notice I am more comfortable with my teddy bear propping my elbow up, lol. I’m sure it looks quite silly. ;-)
So I finally decided I like this one, 3 minutes is plenty of steeping time for it. Yes it has a bold malt note with chocolate and I do think “stout” is an appropriate adjective. I’m not altogether crazy about the finishing note which is a bit too brisk and winey for me, but it is tempered a lot with soymilk and a pinch of sugar.
Probably not a replacement for the resident assam, which I no longer have, but I’ve enjoyed the sample.
