Yunnans and Assams are two of my favorite black teas, so I was eagerly looking forward to trying this tea. I’m happy to report, I was not disappointed. This is a full-bodied, yet refined, breakfast tea. Strong and smooth, with very little astringency. Adding a pinch of sweetener enhanced the flavor instead of covering it up. This is what a classic black tea is supposed to taste like. Satisfying and flavorful. I enjoyed it very much and look forward to my next cup.

I like strong, robust flavors. My current favorites include strong black teas (Keemuns, Yunnan teas and Assams, for example), flavored blacks such as Harney’s Paris, oolongs of any kind, and gyokuros. I like Rooibos and honeybush teas as well, and other herbal blends to help me relax in the evening.

I am willing to try just about anything, but I am not particularly fond of jasmine tea, very fruity or heavily flavored blends, anything with pineapple; and I know this is practically heresy, but I don’t like Darjeelings.
