As I do with almost every tea I get, I tried this tea both hot and cold steeped as iced tea. It’s good, but not great either way.
When enjoyed hot, the malty sweetness of the Assam shines through even as the brightness of the Ceylon is ever present. When iced, the sweetness is mostly gone. A little of the malty flavor is present “towards the back.”
It kind of reminds me of Lipton tea for grownups.
It’s like a lot of other Harney and Sons teas. There’s nothing really wrong with it, it just doesn’t pop.
I still a good cup of tea.
