What a wonderful weekend of Assam teas! I think this chilly weather is bringing out the Assam love in me :) I adore this one because it has the classic malty Assam taste, but it also has an earthiness to it that I appreciate very much. I also can’t complain about the jolt of energy it gives me :) Very unique, and very, very sad that the Simple Leaf is no more. I really think about when is the perfect time for this tea, and Dawn, because I know that I won’t be able to get it again :(

A friend told me that she saw a post somewhere that someone was going to be selling Dawn, so I thought they might also be selling Mountain Malt. I will check into it. Perhaps she was mistaken?

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
