I’m going through a lot of samples looking for a daily Assam tea or blended ‘breakfast’ style tea. This came in the Vadham black tea sampler. This is a nice little tea.
4/3/2018: First tasting was 3 g of tea steeped in 211 degree water for 4 minutes. No milk in first tasting. Mildly astringent with a pleasant maltyness. Some notes of almond and caramel.
4/6/2018: Second tasting with same parameters as above. Two cups this morning; one without milk and one with. Again left with an impression that this is a serviceable tea. I liked it better with milk. I used 2.5 ml of evaporated milk. Rich, malty and creamy.
Flavors: Almond, Astringent, Caramel, Malt
