This is a very brisk, robust, malty tea. Its a very good choice for breakfast or for waking up in the afternoon like me when watching soccer. I can taste the assam, but the ceylon really stands out in this blend. It doesn’t have too much bitterness and does have a little astringency. I was hoping to taste the keemun, but alas I just can’t find it. Sill a nice cup of tea.
