drank Assam by The Tea Spot
2918 tasting notes

Opening the bag, I get a rich malty aroma with a hint of (unexpected) chocolate.
I steep…
ahhh….yes…malty, chewy, bold, full, sweet…calgon, take me away…oops, wrong commercial!
I resteep…
oops again! I accidentally resteeped yesterdays leaves from Two Friends for the 3rd time! I’m kindof shambling around here on autopilot, & I realized it as I was taking the filter out of the cup, the leaves of TF are amazingly big & beautiful! More on that later!
I resteep…
mmmm…still a substantial cup!
So, I’m off to practice some Debussy! I’ve got this, the resteep of TF, & a resteep of Caramel Vanilla Assam (review forthcoming, but I’ll say right now that it’s to die for).

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
