Uni-tea is one of those products that made me wonder, "Why didn't anyone think of this sooner?"  I never would have thought of boosting my Darjeeling with a shot of Assam, or mellowing my Assam with a sprinkling of Darjeeling.  But Golden Tips did, and the world (for tea enthusiasts) is better for it.

Myself, I love a strong black Assam on its own.  This Darjeeling/Assam blend was as hearty as any plain Assam, but with a smoothness that even a weak tea-lover could appreciate.

To suit my preference, I brewed 1.5 teaspoons of leaves in 8 ounces of boiling water per cup.  I steeped for 5 minutes.  If you prefer  more delicate teas, use a teaspoon and steep for three minutes.  Reviewers on Golden Tips' website shared all manner of brewing variations, and all of them gave high ratings to this blend.

I don't use milk in any of my teas, but the pre-dominance of Assam suggests this would be tasty with milk as well.  I rate it a 10 for versatility, smoothness, robustness, and freshness.
