Very nice aroma, bold and fruity kinda flowery.
The first steep 3min as directed, Nice slightly bold body, slight fruity note like a peach followed by a smooth malty creamyness and a lingering astringency on the very end.
Second steep I just upped to 4min, Not quite as bold in the body but the taste is excellent! Fruity notes like plums instead of peach this time with a more intense malty creamyness and the astringency is only half as good as it was before but still lingers in a nice way.
The third steep again I just added one minute up to 5min, Still quite nice and tasty but very bold at all, friuty notes of plum still almost and a kind of raisin like note with smooth malty notes, not so creamy now and hardly any astringency at all.
I did a 4th steep but it came up too weak but still had a nice slight malty note.
Overall this one is Pretty good, the first steep delivered on the bold body and the second steep on the taste with a pleasant third steep also, it does lack a little in the body to me I don’t think I’d care for it with milk(like I enjoy most assams) unless it were made extra strong But at the same time it is a bit too tasty for milk and I don’t think it needs milk because that would weaken the taste of this tea itself, it’s good enough on it’s own.
