Got a sampler of this recently and gave it a try in a head-to-head taste test with two other recommended assam teas from Upton. This one had beautiful colors in the leaves, with orange, yellow mixed in with the black. The brew is dark and a bold flavor. It has some spicy notes, some astringency, some maltiness and fruity notes. It’s a good blend of flavors and a bold assam. Their description says the dry environment in India this year resulted in strong teas. So you may want milk with yours. I tried it black with raw cane sugar as sweetener.
