"Distinctive, even exotique. Like no other Assam I’ve ever tasted. It has the robust maltiness that defines a classic Assam with a pungency that brightens rather than bites. The quality is hard to characterize, call it “of the earth,” perhaps mineral-vegetal, yet not muddy or overwhelming. A surprise brew!"
