"Although this was a good tea, I was surprised to find I preferred the TA36. Though more expensive, I found the flavor profile less satisfying than the delightful TA36. A slight smokiness in the flavor did not appeal to me." David Kennedy

"First, I prefer Assams described as "bracing" rather than "smooth." This tea's flavor is not especially complex, and reminds me of commercial tea bags, but I don't mean that as a negative. It seems to require lots of tea leaves but is still a good value" JennyG

"I think I've been spoiled by the higher end tippy assams. This one didn't do much for me."
