Bold. Black. Malty.
Not bad, but certainly not my fave. Loads better than Tims, which is my ultimate test as to whether I’d ever purchase it again.
I love malty teas, but not so much when they are bold. Ugh, I know that isn’t the right word to describe what I mean, but somehow I can’t place the flavour.
I guess it just feels more manly somehow, the way it closes a sip, right before swallowing.
There was a time when I equated malty and bold, but now I think they are different. Definitely not the same! One I like, the other… ehhhh not at all.
Of course, I added milk and sugar as always with an Assam. Which made it easier to gulp it down before hockey practice. Pretty sure that was the only reason I made it through 2.5hrs of drills and the game after.
Will have to remember this place next time I go. Right outside the subway station with a small selection of looseleaf!
