This is a very good Assam tea. It should be at the price MF charges for it. It was not as malt-forward as many Assams, which at first caused me to question whether it could be my “favorite” Assam tea. Its astringency is less than others, too.
This first time, I followed the Mariage Freres instructions. I suspect that the five minutes step time may have been too long for my tastes, I’ll look forward to another taste soon.
The second infusion of this tea was for 6 minutes. It had more of the initial malty flavor like most Assam teas.

Preparation

Bio

I’m a long-time tea drinker with experience mostly with tea bags and lots of iced tea. In early 2011, I purchased a Breville tea maker and started trying several loose leaf teas.

I’m enjoying learning more about teas and developing my favorites. I’ve discovered that the Breville makes a great cup of tea and suspect I enjoy most of the teas I’ve tried much more because of the quality of tea the Breville brews.
