Drinking this straight after brewing for 4 minutes is punishment.

Drinking this with a little milk and sugar after brewing for 4 minutes is yummy!

Does that make me a wuss? Eh, it’s good so who care!

No, I think a good, dark assam isn’t meant to be drunk straight.

I’m not all that knowledgeable about what constitutes a good Assam – when I first started drinking tea, I tried some and was so turned off that I avoided it until just recently. Now I find that I like it but I just don’t have much experience to know if what I like is actually good or not, if that makes sense?

So I’m very open to any suggestions for good Assams!

Hah. I don’t know too much about Assams, but since you just ordered A&D and they’ve been showing a really great track record, you could very well have a good one on your way. Thomas Sampson is an Assam – though I haven’t been paying him much attention since I’m slightly obsessed with his counterpart.

Now that I’ve finally bitten the bullet and ordered it, I’m so looking forward to these teas coming in. Part of my hesitation was knowing that one of the teas was an Assam and not knowing if I liked Assam or not. But since I’ve had some English and Irish Breakfasts, I’m more comfortable that I will like it. YAY!

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
