Dried leaves are broken and slightly tippy.
Brewed with spring water—4 minutes at near boiling.
The liquor is a bright reddish-brown. I picked up strong flavors of dates and malt with a woody and clover honey undertone, but very little astringency and no bread/toast, which surprised me for an Assam tea. This isn’t as heavy as other Assams, either, so this can be enjoyed throughout the day—not just a breakfast tea.
This is certainly an enjoyable tea that is a welcome addition to my cupboard.
