An exquisite Assam. Sweet, rich and malty, but also fruity. This Assam seems to meet somewhere between malty Assam and wine-y Assam. Very pleasant. Not bitter, although, I did only steep for 2 minutes so it might get bitter if oversteeped.

But as it is (was, since this is a backlog) … this tastes amazing. Sweet, with the sweetness coming from the fruit notes as well as the caramel-y malty tones, rich and flavorful. Complex and absolutely delightful to sip.

Sounds so good. You don’t talk about the ‘hazel’ part though, is that because you couldn’t taste it?

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

*

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
