Very GoodGoodReasonable

The dry leaf is by far the fruitiest-smelling Assam that I have yet encountered...but upon brewing it's a little less fruity. This is a very strong tea...when brewed it's maltier than fruity, and has a fairly tannic aftertaste like Teavana describes. Bitter and somewhat astringent...I've had much smoother Assams.

This would be a good choice for someone who wants a powerful, strong tea that still has complexity. Pricey but I think among the more reasonably-priced of Teavana's teas.
