What-Cha, ya’ll are on POINT with selecting your Assams. This beaut is just perfection to start the day. Strong, brisk, rich, and not a bit of astringency. Wonderful big leaves, which I think really improves an Assam. Can’t believe I just have a small portion. When I buy again, this will be be on list. I prefer this one hot, but I think it would be proper iced.
