This tea seems “just right” on so many occasions. Sometimes it replaces my usual Assam at breakfast, and it’s often my first choice for afternoon tea. It has both strength and clarity of flavor. As Upton’s notes say, it’s like an unsmoky Keemun, which I have come to recognize is my favorite kind.

Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

I am a nearly lifelong tea drinker, a habit to which I ascribe much of my good health and good humor. I enjoy all types of tea but find special comfort in strong black teas lightened with a splash of unsweetened almond milk.
