This is the perfect vanilla tea!
Cold brew 1.5 tsp leaf, 500 mL water, 1 hour steep
Smooth malty base with sweet and cocoa notes. Some marshmallow (not as much as I would have liked, but it’s present), so much vanilla. Very flavourful and assam comes through nicely. I’m not very familiar with different varietals, but I think this is a good example of the malty mouth feel you get from assams. It makes it feel rich, smooth, thick, and satisfying (rather than just flavoured water). No astringency or bitterness, despite the long steep and dark brew colour. The sweetness really brings it all together nicely, and it doesn’t taste artificial at all.
