From Teabox

Brisk and bold, this Assam black tea is an extraordinary pick this spring. Heady flavors of dates and apricot linger throughout its flavor profile.
Its full-bodied liquor bespeaks prominent malty notes, typical of a premium quality Assam black tea. Its astringent palate profile is complemented by pleasing sweet accents, promising a satiating experience. A high caffeine tea, this Assam delicacy is marked by a long, brisk finish, making it a perfect wake-me-up brew for your mornings.

I didn’t think this tea was as good as some of the other Assams, not enough of a flavor profile, but still quite a drinkable tea especially the pow from the abundant caffeine

Very pleased with this tasty, aroma filled Assam. A very pleasant maltiness in the background and a sweet, fresh flavor and aroma up front. Much less dark and dense than many similar teas that are picked later in the year. Clean and crisp.

Flavors: Dates, Honey, Malt

I was happy to see this months Steepster Select box had a mix of tea types. I was nervous that each month would be one type of tea after the first month was ALL green teas. So the moment I saw an assam (my favorite) I knew I had to try it first! The dry leaf smelled pretty malty. Just how I like my assam teas. I let it steep for the suggested five minutes. Which I first thought was a bit much, but then realized it was actually just right when I took my first sweet sips. So much malty goodness in this tea and the aroma is to die for with hints of honey and fruit! It’s a good thing you get two steeps out of this one as I think I’m going to need another pot!
