While this whole-leaf tea displays only limited tip, the pleasant cup has a creamy-smooth character with a rich complexity that suggests a more expensive tea. This is a special Assam tea at an everyday price.

This is a whole-leaf tea but I was less impressed with it relative to other broken-leaf teas I have tried lately.

Brewed as instructed, this is a strong Assam with a classic flavor profile, malty, tannic, slightly savory. I find Upton's description made me expect a smoother tea than this is.

Some Assams have the complexity of their aroma come out if you brew them with a briefer brewing time, but I found that this one is just blander when brewed this way. I recommend going with the full 5 minutes.

This tea has an extremely malty aroma that may be too intense for some people. I found that if you use water just a notch under boiling, it tones down the maltiness a bit. In the end though, I failed to get really excited about this one. It just seemed like a typical, strong cup of black tea.
