A strong, deep flavour, rich, full bodied with some maltiness but not the heaviness or sickliness that Assams sometimes can have. Brews very dark in the cup, the leaves are very small and could almost have come out of a teabag. Though I like all my teas black I imagine many people might find this undrinkable or overwhelming without milk, and sugar too if that’s your thing. But if you want something with a strong flavour and kick, to blast you into the day, or a punch to equal coffee then this would fit the bill. Powerful and invigorating it’s one I’ll always have in the cupboard.
