I got this with my first Steepster Select box, and I like it. The flavor is lighter than a straight Assam, but the texture is very pleasant…not thin, but not too thick either. It’s got a slight bite on the back end, which is indeed reminiscent of cinnamon, and a somewhat mint/menthol-like “feel” (not “flavor”, per se) on the front, making it very intriguing.

I’m enjoying this cup very much…and now that I’ve read other reviews, I think when I try the second packet I’ll do a gong-fu style brew, as it sounds like that brings out more of the spicy flavors. Still, good stuff even brewed just normal cup style, IMO.
