A little ashamed to say this is currently the only Assam tea I’ve tried. It’s rich, malty and strong, in a good way, as I’ve read an Assam should be. Reminded me of a malted milk biscuit (cookie).
I brewed for just over a minute… although I think I should have brewed less. I couldn’t finish the cup without adding a dash of milk to mask the bitterness. Even without another Assam to compare this to, I imagine the bitterness is not so much a flavour of the tea but a result of over-steeping the tea bag.
Definitely going to try more Assams in the future! Any recommendations?
