I wrote a review for this tea for The Tea Review Blog about a week or so ago, although it’s not yet been published. I really like this Assam. It has a pleasant malty character, but it is quite different from other Assam teas in that it possesses a wine-like quality to it.

I usually prefer to drink this tea in the early evening with my dinner, however, I recently procured a bit of Chipotle Chai Spice from World Spice Merchants, and I was anxious to try some. The Chai spice does not come with tea, it is just a blend of spices that you can add to the tea of your choice, so I just happened to grab this Assam this morning.

The spice has a very bold kick to it – very spicy indeed! I added an ample dollop of honey and I heated and frothed my milk for the chai – this is better than any coffee shop could prepare for me! It has a hint of sweetness – almost a fruity sweetness – but it’s ever so delicate, a bit smoky, but not too much, and a lot spicy. This really packs a punch!

I’m really liking this chai blend. I think the next time I will try brewing it with my chocolate rose romance – it would be spectacular with the chipotle! Maybe a pinch of salt to keep it interesting!

I like the creative use of flavors. I have a lovely, malty assam that just cries out for a dash of maple syrup and a tad of orange liqueur.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

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, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
