Description: The dark, orange-brown liquor is well-balanced and smooth, with light pungency, making this a good selection for those that prefer their Assam tea without milk. The flavor hints of honey and cocoa add an interesting panache to the cup. A great value for everyday consumption.

"Definite sweet/honey finish. A second steeping of the leaves was not bad, considering I don't have much luck with a second steeping. I definitely don't think adding milk to this tea is a good idea. I drink this tea at work and it brews well with our hot-water dispenser. Will definitely buy a bigger quantity next time, since this size bag will usually only last me about 2 months. Good stuff!!"

"I loved this tea. Contrary to the description it holds up to milk rather well, however I do have a tendency to brew a strong pot of tea. I've been enjoying this immensely."
