Back for another try of the Assam, this time with cream and sugar, and steeped just a bit longer than previously. My, that is tasty! More maltiness is coming out now, and I can see that this tea’s strategy is to try to get you to dunk cookies into it. Unfortunately I don’t have any on hand at the moment, otherwise I’d have to oblige.

Grandma introduced me to tea as a kid (lipton with milk and sugar; a bit poured into the saucer to cool it down and then sipped from there), and I’ve never looked back. Still have a slight preference for teas that go well with milk (or even better, cream) and sugar, but since Grandma’s day I’ve branched out to appreciate green and white teas, rooibos and pu erh. Absolutely love Mariage Freres!
