I’ve been immersing myself in Yunnans lately, trying to learn about their differences and commonalities, but my allergied-out taste-buds have been yearning for something STRONGER so they can really TASTE something. I reached into the tea cabinet and my hand went directly to this tea. Sigh……….. thank you taste buds. This is just what I needed! I adore good malt and baked bread notes, and this tea has both….along with some chocolate, sweet potato, a touch of raisin and we wee bit of stone fruit (that I find comes out best when having nilla wafers with this tea) Dinjoye Estate Assam has a nice intricate flavor profile without being too complicated. Assam, absence has made my heart grow fonder. I have missed you.

Flavors: Baked Bread, Chocolate, Malt, Raisins, Stonefruits, Sweet Potatoes

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

I drank a cup of this first thing this morning. As much as I love my Chinese teas, I need a cup of Assam from time to time too. :)

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.
