Still doing my self-inflicted research in the world of assams and such, hence having a silent moment with this specimen in the early noon at the moment. Let’s see how accurate the description is with that recommendation.
In any case, this type is indeed strong and rich, especially after the demanded four minutes of steeping, and the bite hits the tongue quite sharply. Nothing a sliver of milk couldn’t remedy…
After adding milk, it gets very different, and gains a more mellow character to it. Pleasant company, I could say. Nothing fancy.
Adding a tiny bit of chai to it and – oh. Oh my. That takes it to a very charming level indeed.
Interesting little case.
