This Assam lacks the astringency I like and has a slightly sweet and earthy/woodsy aroma. It’s a good tea but if you like the maltiness of Assams then look elsewhere.
I do love the fact that the leaves are whole and not chopped up which, in my opinion, says quality but the fragrance is lacking.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec
Butiki Teas

If you are looking for a little more astringency and maltiness, I recommend steeping the tea for 5 minutes. We tend to set brewing instructions so that there is minimal astringency. :)
