From TeaSource

This is a great everyday Assam, very hearty and malty, but with a nice clean taste. This tea is our first choice for using as a base tea for Chai.

Here’s Hoping Teabox – Round Seven- Tea #12
The tiny pebbles of this tea made me a bit scared. But overbrewing the second steep for way too many minutes didn’t even make it too strong. Both steeps definitely tasted like an assam, strong with a medium body, malty but fruity with a thirst quenching quality. Don’t pass this one up in the teabox! Surprisingly one of my favorites of the teabox so far.

The tiny pebbles sound like a Ceylon that I once had.

From the Here’s Hoping TTB. This is my first real disappointment from the TTB. This is a CTC tea, but I’d at least hoped for a good strong breakfast tea. However, it was weak and bland. I suspect this may have just be too old; either too long in the box, or maybe an older tea that was added. Second steep of 7 minutes: nothing there.

Definitely not too long in the box, I would have taken it out! I didn’t see this one last round.

I bought this for making Chai, but decided to try drinking it straight yesterday. It’s a CTC tea, so I was expecting a strong, bitter flavor. I was pleasantly surprised! The flavor is definitely robust and malty, but only slightly bitter. With a splash of milk, it made for a lovely breakfast tea! Still need to try it with their Chai mix, though.
