Full bodied for sure. But even when I took a deep breath, crossed my fingers and steeped for the recommended 5 minutes, I didn’t really get much astringency. Also not a lot of malt, compared to other CTCs I keep for that flavor profile. This still needs to be tested in the crucible of “hot” restaurant water in less than optimal conditions to see if it needs to be kept on hand. I suspect not, as I have a few others that do have lots of malt even in those conditions. But, I have a big pouch of this for now and it goes really, really smoothly with a dollop of cream so it will be a nice every-winter-day drinker until it’s gone. :)
