Had a bit of dragonwell this morning but need a kick in the pants. Picked this one at random. The dry smell has been ruined a bit but the wet leaf aroma represents all that is good about Assam teas. slightly malty, woodsy, bread pudding, old oak chest. The flavor is a good kick in the pants. The perfect amount of astringency to wake you up but not to make you go “whoa too much”. A bit of resin and varnish but overall very woodsy and glorious. Malty and smooth mouth feel.
