Backlog:

A very finely chopped CTC. But that’s OK because as long as the tea is fresh, I find that the finely chopped Assam teas tend to be very robust, and that’s just what you want from an Assam. Just don’t oversteep it!

And this is a very hearty Assam. Lots of gusto, a strong, malty, rich flavorful Assam. Would be perfect as that first cup of the day. Nice caramel-y undertones. Good with milk and honey, or my recommendation would be to put a cinnamon stick in your teacup when you pour this tea into it. It won’t add a huge cinnamon taste, but just a hint of it … and it would be a really enjoyable, zesty contrast to the richness of this tea.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

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. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. 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.
