This was a wonderfully smooth-flavored Assam, yet with good strength and complexity, and a great price. Thank you to Simpson & Vail for this sample!

Dry leaf, which is fine, curly, and has a moderate amount of golden tip, has an interesting aroma, initially there's a slight burned quality, suggestive of candle wax, but this gives way to a strong and sweet-smelling aroma of malt and baked goods. It looks just like in the picture!

This tea has typical characteristics of an Assam but is a bit more interesting than most. It has a strong flavor that is both sweet and savory, and less bitter. Only moderate-bodied. The aroma is just like the dry leaf: strongly malty, but with a slight burned quality, and notes of candle wax.

Feels strongly caffeinated, but doesn't make me feel at all jittery. I like how I feel after drinking it. This is a great wake-me-up tea.

This tea was inexpensive for such a high-grade and smooth tea. I highly recommend it, especially if you like strongly-caffeinated black teas with a smooth flavor. Teas like this often tend to cost a lot more!
