I love this tea. The leaves unfurl to these beautiful, big, dark chocolate leaves on steeping. It’s malty, smooth, and complex with layers of flavor.

I can’t say that I’ve ever perceived cinnamon in my tastings, but I do seem to always get a taste or mouthfeel of caramel – particularly after I swallow.

It’s so wonderful that I can hardly believe I’m not drinking a flavored tea. This is far and away the best assam I’ve ever tasted.

A tea fanatic who works in the tech sector, I purchase most of my tea online. The numerical ratings are to help me remember which teas I should re-order. 85+ means it’s worth a re-purchase. (If I ever get through all of the new ones I want to try!)

It’s pretty obvious from my tealog, but I have special place in my heart for flavored blacks and good rooibos. I also love oolongs, but apparently have expensive taste in that area, so I don’t purchase them too often. Learning to appreciate green tea, but not a fan of overly vegetal ones. Whites make a great iced tea.

I love to try new teas and will sample most anything once. Although I’ll usually pass on Earl Grey or super floral blends.

I drink my tea with no additions, unless otherwise noted in the review.
