I’ve had this the last several mornings. I like it, but nothing about it leaps out to me. Yesterday I used 1.5 tsp with a 4 min steep and felt like it ended up a bit astringent. Today I used 1 tsp with a 4 min steep and was much happier with it. For a second steep I did 5 min, which I think I would increase to 5.5 or 6 min next time.

Flavors: Malt

Accidentally ordered again so as reviewing again! Realized by seeing I’d rated it before when I went to put it in my cupboard and rate it now. I saw I gave it a low score but decided to not look at the review itself and give it a clean go-over without past observations read and basing my perceptions. Gonna read afterward and see how they matched lol.

And if I like it better this time it certainly wouldn’t be the first!!

Weak bodied, with a fairly standard but less brown/black/burnt flavor of assam tea.

Very mildly astringent, around gum lines but mostly in mid-underside of tongue.

Extremely short primary finish. Almost non-existent. There is only a flat generic assam feeling in the back of throat and front end, little more than the tip, that lingers for a long while. Actual specific tea traits are gone during the swallow.

A bit of malty sweetness halfway through sip in almost the direct center of tongue.

This isn’t a bad tasting tea, but not a particularly pleasant one either for me. It just doesn’t seem to have much personality in any direction and leaves me going, “ehhhhhhh. No.”.

Like, I am gonna finish what I made of it but give the rest of the sample to my two roommates and make myself a different tea I received today. Maybe whoever uses the rest will like it.
