I’m trying this one again, to see if it behaves better at different steep parameters. And the verdict is, yes! It does. More leaf and a shorter steep time led to a much better tea experience. It reminds me of Andrews and Dunham’s R29 Ceylon, a tea I’m quite pleased with as well.
The tea has a medium body, is not astringent or bitter-tasting, in fact, it seems a bit sweet. This seems a bit malty in the beer sense of the term, like when you homebrew and add the malt. Not malty like I see people use it to refer to assams.
Steeped 4 teaspoons in 1000 ml water at 195 degrees for 2 minutes.
