"This tea didn't do much for us. Brewed the first time at our normal assam strength the tea was thin and didn't have much taste. Brewed much stronger the second time it had more flavor but just tasted like strong tea, little malt. Those that like weaker assams might like this. I don't think Uptons tasting note is very accurate."
