89 Tasting Notes

The main thing I have to say about this is it’s very LIGHT, maybe weak is the right word. I’ve tried it twice and now I need to try it again brewed at double strength.

That being said, the flavour that did come through was sweet and pleasant, but that’s about all I can detect for now. Also the leaves are in fact “big leaf” as advertised. Not only are they large “pieces” of leaf but the leaves are larger leaves – not sure if that means they are from the Assamese variety or something else.

I think I get this tea now (that I’m almost done the bag.. :( ), though I still think milk/cream brings out its best attributes – i.e. malty sweetness. There could still be a place for it in my collection.
