Vanilla + caramel – this tea is delicious!

The dry leaf in the tin is strong and bright; long and tight; so dark it is black in color. If you’ve not tried the Assam teas, this would be a great one to convince you that you’ve been missing out on something special! As the tea brews, the aroma is soft and creamy. The malty flavor of the assam makes this a very fine black tea to drink at any time. Always able to infuse again for a nice second cup (almost as good as the first). (Note: I did add a little sweetener to bring out the caramel.)

Reformed coffee drinker. Switched to tea as part of my goal to work on living a healthier, more balanced life — haven’t looked back since. Surprised to learn what a passion I have developed for all things tea related.

I enjoy most tea types but I cannot handle jasmine or other florals and I’m not particularly fond of bergamot. Started with flavored teas but moved quickly into unflavored blacks and puerhs. Now most of my purchases are puerh cakes for aging. My cold brews for iced tea tend to be a fruity green, white or rooibos but every once in awhile I’ll chill an oolong or puerh.

Note: In an effort to keep track of all the teas I’ve tried, my cupboard includes any tea I’ve ever owned (including things I’ve sipped down or given away and no longer have in my tea cupboard). In addition, many of the teas listed are unopened waiting to age or work their way into the rotation.
