I was happy to see this months Steepster Select box had a mix of tea types. I was nervous that each month would be one type of tea after the first month was ALL green teas. So the moment I saw an assam (my favorite) I knew I had to try it first! The dry leaf smelled pretty malty. Just how I like my assam teas. I let it steep for the suggested five minutes. Which I first thought was a bit much, but then realized it was actually just right when I took my first sweet sips. So much malty goodness in this tea and the aroma is to die for with hints of honey and fruit! It’s a good thing you get two steeps out of this one as I think I’m going to need another pot!

Flavors: Fruity, Honey, Malt

I am a tea lover, a wife, mom of one, and servant to three cats (all rescues). I love to read and write. I’m also a BIG fan of the following shows: BBC Sherlock, Doctor Who, Law and Order, Supernatural, Bones, and more – bless Netflix.

I started drinking and enjoying tea when I was 7 (sure it was bagged Lipton, but it got me started) with my grandmother. As I said it was Lipton with milk and sugar (and peanut butter and jelly on toast) and my love just grew from there. I was brought to loose leaf through a trip to Teavana. But my taste has expanded to many different types of tea since then. I review teas at the link provided, check it out!
