I was right – it’s much better with milk, but still a little bit on the bland side for an Assam. It doesn’t taste quite as malty with milk but instead the bake-y/biscuity flavours comes to the fore a bit more.

It’s a decent wake-me-up tea I think, but it doesn’t strike me as anything particularly special or engaging to the senses.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
