First time I tried it several months ago i over-steeped it. At 4 min this tea became bitter and i disliked it immediately. didnt want to try again until last night I was reading Nicole’s review Golden Tip Assam by Gong Fu Tea Shop which inspired me to try again. This time I steeped it only for 3min. 1/2 of a brew I made with whole milk(didnt have a cream) and 1tsp of maple syrup . Another half was plain. This tea is amazing both ways. Milk+ syrup is like creme brulee , so rich and satisfying. Plain is very malty, thick, muscatel flavors. the smell is intoxicating. Who needs a dessert after such cup of tea? not me;)

what an elegant conclusion…. ‘who needs dessert after such a cup of tea? not me.’

Thank you, James . I’m trying hard. That cup of tea was so good that I felt this is it. I think every time I have cravings for sweets I should fix myself something like this

JustJames

that’s what i do! must say i’m quite pleased to wear my dressier shirts now! i’m way more toned… i don’t even crave it anymore. (hard to believe but true). i won a chocolate bar in class today i handed it over to my friends =0)

your writing has gotten so fancy my friend!

Well I’m still a sucker for dark chocolate, but small piece is enough . Now when I drink tea I don’t eat any pastry or chocolate because I want to notice different flavors. Regarding my writing I just like to read good reviews and kind of pick up good choice of words. Not that I’m copying but kind of getting inspired. I really like to read your reviews and I can see whether you like it or not by the tone of your writing. Writing is fun . Btw my daughter wants to apply to one specialized school and her talent is creative writing. She will have her tests in January.

JustJames

that’s so exciting! you’ll have to let us know how it goes! it’s hard not to be inspired with so many people captured by the skill sets of master alchemists… =0) we’re all a passionate bunch i think, no?

wow! had added this to my wishlist at H&S, then decided to check steepster for reviews…this sounds outrageous, prepared both ways as per your instructions. although i definitely have to try it creme brulee style!

I need to restock it. Maybe 2 steeps left. Still love it, so rich. I had it today for breakfast without any additions. Divine…
