I’ve drunk this for a couple of mornings now and am trying to reconcile my impressions with those of my fellow Steepsterites. Somehow I don’t perceive this one as big and bold at all; it brews up a light to medium amber, with some delicate flavor notes. On my first tasting I got a hint of cooked veggies (thank you, Harfatum, for letting me know I’m not hallucinating, although for me it was asparagus rather than Brussels sprouts!), and today I picked up on the bready quality more. Contrary to its name, it doesn’t strike me as super-malty, either. I will continue tasting and exploring this one.

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.
