As the name entails, the dry leaf has pretty gold mixed throughout. Being an assam, it brews up with that familiar heavy, leafy scent. It has a very pretty blood orange color. It’s a strong assam. Some astringency and some bitter, nutty flavor. I do like the full-bodied-ness of it. Don’t think I’d buy this, but I’m gonna fool around with the rest of my sample and see if I can get a more pleasant brew out of it. Might be a decent base for you sugar lovers.

Flavors: Astringent, Autumn Leaf Pile, Bitter, Nutty
