Yes, this is my first cup of the day. I was up very late last night, so as soon as I got my little one off to school, I crashed!

Anyway… what a lovely, beautiful Assam! The tips are indeed golden and remind me a bit of a golden tip Yunnan, but it doesn’t taste like it. The flavor is so rich with an underlying tone of honey-caramel. Malty. Smooth. SO smooth. Absolutely delicious and just what I needed to get myself going today.

I really love this Assam!

Awesome. Is it very astringant?

You know, I didn’t really focus much on the astringency… I will have some tomorrow morning and be sure to mention it on my tasting note then.

This was the creamiest Assam I’ve ever had. Very similar to a Yunnan in its nectariness. And I didn’t notice much astringency except a little bit on the foretaste.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

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.
