    Purely Assam
    Rating:5 out of 5 stars
    A good rich, malty, bready assam that can stand up to milk & sugar. As usual don’t over steep an Assam. Wonderful value for fair trade organic!

    Good buy.

    Classic Assam Estate tea, malty, full-bodied, medium-strength organic black tea with a slightly sweet aroma and aftertaste (clearly a second flush offering; the first flush pickings have a Darjeeling-like astringency). Very drinkable by as is, but does very nicely with a spot of milk. I will purchase this tea again. Highly recommended.

    Bland
    Rating:3 out of 5 stars
    I normally like Assam teas, but this is pretty bland — the flavor is simple & shallow. There’s no richness, earthiness or depth. Considering that this a pound bag of the stuff, if you buy it there’ll be a lot of boring tea to slog through (or throw out).

    One reviewer commented about the paper package impairing retention of flavor. FWIW, while the outer bag is paper, it’s plastic-coated on the inside; it may not be a hermetic seal, but it’s adequate. Based on my experience, if you’re spooning single servings, you can probably expect the wire fold-closure to break halfway through the bag, so have a clothespin around.

    excellent classic Assam tea
    Rating:5 out of 5 stars
    This is a wonderful deep-flavored classic Assam tea, and certified organic, as well. The flavor is malty and rich, with no bitterness or off-flavors. Stands up well to milk and a bit of sugar but would also be excellent without them, say, as an iced tea in summer. I am a simple tea drinker, not a gourmet expert. I simply like this tea a lot and will purchase it again.

    bland but cheap
    Rating:3 out of 5 stars
    As others have mentioned, the taste is pretty bland. But it’s cheap and if you put twice as much tea in it tastes almost as strong as fancier, more expensive brands. Almost.

    Maybe good tea but packaging is very poor

    Tea should be stored in an airtight container. This paper bag is just folded at the top w/o any seal. Tea was tasteless. I should have returned it but I was too lazy to do so. I am sure Amazon would have taken it back and would have paid for shipping. I like Amazon but not all the products are excellent.

    Good and affordable

    Not a connoisseur by any stretch, but tea is whole leaf and tastes good. Considering the Twinnings tins in the store give you about 1/5th the amount for the same price (and it’s tea leave dust) this is all the more valuable. 1lb lasts a while so maybe portion into zip top bags for longer storage.

    Not so Hot

    It was neither fresh nor tasty. Perhaps if they wrapped it in an airtight container it could change my opinion but by the time I got it it tasted as if it been lying around gathering dust. The flavors of the tea didnt matter because they were overshadowed by the other factors. Had high hopes but had to toss it all out.
