Thank you to SuperStarling! for sending me this tea.

I’m not sure what happened here. Perhaps I overleafed it or used too hot of water but I couldn’t get this one to NOT be bitter. I first tried it with close to boiling water for 10-15 seconds and it was bitter. I poured that out and reduced the water temp to about 200 degrees and steeped it again for 10-15 seconds and it turned out just as, if not more, bitter than the first steep.

Unfortunately, this one is a no for me. It started off promising, as the wet leaves smelled delicious and malty.

Oh my. This is some serious Assam nums. Very malty and with a smooth sweetness. The malt tends to fall off at the cooling end of the cup and a hint of bitter creeps in. The leaf appearance is stunning. Thanks to Indigobloom for sharing some of this delicious tea!
