429 Tasting Notes
This is such a nice breakfast tea. Its brisk, robust, chewy, smooth and I am even getting honey nuances this morning. Seeing the list of all the teas in this blend makes me want to try each one of them separately. This tea has a wine like consistency and has an underlying sweetness to it. Its one of the few teas that I have that makes me want to make another cup as soon as it is finished.
I think I just got a bargain. Big Lots had this tea for 2 bucks for 100g, I bought 2. This is a light blend but its great in the afternoon. This is a blend of a few mild teas. No bitterness or astringency that I can taste. This is a nice smooth and mellow tea and I really enjoyed it.
This is the smoothest assam I have ever had. The tea is brisk, robust, and chewy without any bitterness. I am even having a hard time finding astringency, there is some but not much. Most of my assam drinking has been from single estate teas. It seems that 52teas has taken the best assams and blended them. This tea is really very good. If you have a hard time with assams hitting you in the face with their strength, I would give this tea a try. I have a hard time calling an assam tea smooth and mellow, but this one is close.
This is only tea that I have had from Vietnam. This is also the only tea that I’ve drank that comes off exactly as advertised. The tea has beautiful leaves and steeps up amber in color. The tea has a refreshing clean taste with a slightly sweet finish. This is not a heavy or breakfast tea. I really enjoyed this tea and it is one I may reorder.
