"This is a great value in an organic assam. It displays subtle nuances of malt and spiciness, not too robust or hearty. I have found it critical to time the infusion, otherwise, the tea is quite bitter. Sometimes I mix this with an organic Keemun for a delightful range of flavor. It is good with some honey and milk but I am liking it even more plain."

"This is a really fresh malty tea which I like. It seems like it might also be quite high in caffeine so I sometimes brew it less time or make sure I am ready to go!" jac

"This tea has very little aroma or taste. The only flavor I detect is a subtle floweriness and bitterness. Most definitely NO malt which is what I want in an Assam."
