This assam is smooth. Wait, I think I spelled that wrong….this assam is smooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooth. And cocoa-y. Not cocoa krispies cocoa….more like Scharffenberger cocoa. I also got a stone fruit note from it and a light malt. This isn’t a digital alarm clock (beep beep beep!) assam…it’s a “smooth jazz coming on quietly and progressively getting louder” alarm clock assam for the mornings when you want to be awake, but don’t want your feathers ruffled too much…. recommended.

Flavors: Chocolate, Stonefruits

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

Spot or pot, I love a cup!

I learned to drink tea while living in Dublin in the early 80’s, so as you can imagine, I am a hearty brew lover, and take tea with milk and honey. I am trying to expand my horizons with tea….that is why I’m now on Steepster! Joined in January 2014.

Currently loving strong black teas that hold up to milk and honey well. I have a curiosity about keemuns and yunnans, but smoky ones are out. Green and white teas are off my radar, but making little forays into oolong and darjeeling tea. Herbal? So far only cacao tea has gone into regular rotation in my tea routine.

I do like some naturally flavoured teas…almond, vanilla, cardamom, ginger. This seems to be mostly in the cooler months…but mostly I’m an unflavoured tea drinker.

Life is too short for bad tea and bad bread.
