drank Best Assam Tea by Purvi Discovery
4833 tasting notes

I received a sampling of this tea as a reviewer for the Tea Review Blog.

The dry leaf is very pebble-y – like grains of sand in size, and dark, chocolate-y brown in color. It possesses a vibrant aroma – with deep earthy notes and a baked bread smell and even a distant flowery note. It smells… well, like Assam tea!

The flavor is malty – perhaps one of the maltiest Assam teas that I’ve encountered, with a strong astringency that has a clean, drying effect on the mouth. I steeped it for just 3 minutes but I’m tasting no bitterness. It has a deep baked flavor and a chewy texture. This tea has got some tooth! There is a honey-caramel sweetness to it too. It’s really delicious.

An excellent way to wake up!

This is actually not so much a company as it is a vacation location! I don’t see anyplace where you can actually order the tea on the website!

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!
