Taster’s Review:

There are few teas that I find more rewarding first thing in the morning than a delicious, single estate Assam like this one.  It is bold, rich and satisfying, and it has that certain strength to it that I look for when I am choosing my first-thing-in-the-morning tea.

This is sweet and malty, as the description states, although, I don’t find it as malty as some other Assam teas that I’ve tasted.  Instead, this has an intriguing balance between malty and wine-like taste.  Usually, I find that Assam teas are either malty or wine-like … but this one seems to bring both qualities to the cup.

It is also quite smooth and full-flavored, with a pleasing roundness to it.  It does have a little astringency to it, but I find that the astringency here plays to the wine-like characteristics.

A very enjoyable Assam, one worth checking out!
