drank Assam Custard by Custom
4421 tasting notes

This morning (well, technically, it’s afternoon, but I slept in so it’s morning for me), I decided to brew up a special treat. This is the very last of this tea that I had from a small “tester” batch that I made. Assam and custard go well together, I think.

The sweet, creamy custard flavor brings out some of the Assam’s malty characteristics. Very nice, just slightly bitter (but not in a bad way), very pleasant way to start the day!

Oh, that does sound good. I know someone who goes to England just for the custards! Also the puds in general, but custards in particular.

The second infusion was just as nice as the first… perhaps even a bit nicer! The Assam softened just a bit, which made it a smoother tasting custard in a teacup! Yum!

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.
