Last time I was at Acquired Taste, the sales associate (I’m sure she’s the owner) generously gave me a sample of this after having a nice conversation about black tea. She figured I’d like this since I like my bold Assams. Initially, I wasn’t exactly the most ecstatic because I haven’t had great luck with CTC. They’re usually ultra astringent and flat.

But this is a win! The best CTC I’ve tried to date. It’s so malty, it’s like drinking Milo, especially when you add some milk. It’s a little thinner than expected. You’d think with a bold flavour like this, it would be accompanied with a thick mouthfeel. That’s my only complaint. I’m detecting some dried fruit in the aftertaste too. Maybe dried apricot and apple rings.

This CTC from Malawi is purchase-worthy. Something I would grab if I were out of black tea and didn’t want to spend $20494202 on one ounce of whatever black tea online.
