I was shocked to see 'Tea P's' one star review bring this amazing tea's overall rating down. I too like Assams, but not as much as Chinese black teas and this is one of the best I've ever had.
I would say that this is by far Harney's best black tea of the current stock. It can take a bit of finessing to pull out the sweetness. I find shorter brew times (~2:45-3:00) with 4 grams per eight ounces (8 oz.) of water right off the boil yields amazing results. A spectacular tea. Too bad only 1 pound lots are available.
Thought it was just ok but family and office staff (all Assam lovers) disliked it. The leaves are beautiful but I was surprised be the negative reviews
This is one of the best discoveries that our friends at H&S have come up with yet. The aroma and flavor are sublime. The second steep is just as full-bodied as the first, so even though it's in the higher price range it is good value. It has replaced Keemun Mao Feng as my Sunday tea (KMF is now a weekday tea for me). I like to have a truly special tea on Sunday mornings, when I like to lounge around the house, take it easy, drink a fine pot or two, and read the Sunday paper. This tea is the perfect choice for whatever your version of a special morning is.
