This is a bold, rich Assam, malty, strong flavored without being overly harsh. Perhaps slightly less edgy than average for an Assam of this strength, and this could be either an asset or a downside, depending on what you are looking for.

I find this tea is able to be brewed with more leaf than I normally use for an Assam, while still being pleasant and drinkable. It's not the most complex or interesting tea, however.

I regularly drink two loose-leaf Assam blends from Ahmad Tea, both of which I think I slightly prefer to this one, and they are much cheaper. They are, however, not organic certified, and that's a small plus for me so I can see paying a bit more for that. Still, I think that this tea is very pricey for what it is.

This tea is about the same price as Arbor Teas Assam TGFOP, which is also organic certified, and I think that is a much better tea, top grade and really outstanding. This tea was good but didn't wow me, and also didn't have any unusual or attention-getting qualities in the aroma, nothing to make it particularly distinctive or hold my interest.

Been trying to reach you about adding some teas but not seeming to have much success. I would like to add the brands:
"Harry and David" (with the flavors Cinnamon rooibos, pomegranate, earl grey, and pear vanilla) and
"Disney" (topsy turvy tea blend and mad tea party blend- they are from disneyworld)
I've been holding these teas for a bit because I've been wanting to rate them, so the sooner they go up it would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
