drank Assam Gold Rain by Teavana
4833 tasting notes

Thank you to Wifey_Woman for sending me some of this tea!

I forgot to set the timer when I started steeping this tea (tomorrow my Breville is supposed to arrive, I await it anxiously!) so I don’t know how long I steeped it. Fortunately, I don’t think I over-steeped because it isn’t bitter.

It is very pleasant. Smooth, rich taste with a nice malty tone. A very good gold Assam.

PS: Wifey_Woman … I can smell the blueberry more than I can taste it!

Thank goodness. That will teach me to let anyone but me clean anything tea related!

More than the actual cleaning (although that is important too) is to allow it to air out. I found that after storing especially fragrant teas, allowing the vessel to breathe adequately was the only way to rid it of the scent.

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!
