Very nice and satisfying cup of Assam came to me from ifjuly. Thank you !
1tsp 205F 3min 8oz
This tea is very smooth and on a milder side which means its perfect without additives. Floral, malty, with a touch of honey. Some muscatel flavors and stone fruits could be detected, nothing over the top. I think its perfect as afternoon tea.
I’m glad i had a chance to try it. i’m sure i will pick up some once there is some promo from Capital tea ltd.

i’m on a quest for a new fav Assam. This sample came to me from very generous and spontaneous ifjuly. Thank you!!!
205F 1tsp 8 oz 2.45 min produced golden delicious tea. it has Darjeeling floral-fruity notes. very smooth and not bitter. some malt but not over the top.
its important to me since I rarely add milk or sugar. This tea is elegant and i’m sure would be great as an afternoon tea.
Thank you ifjuly for helping me to discover new teas. i have a lot to sample

i am also on the same quest …. the perfect assam with milk and sugar… have you tried the Teabox Assam sampler? Due to the shipping, I’m a bit hesitant….but it looks brilliant…

No, ihaven’t. I did order some Assam samples from Upton. its a perfect way to try anything in small amounts. I dont order samplers sets but individual samples based on description and reviews. 12g is enough to make a decision:)

That sounds delicious!

It’s excellent cold brewed as well. So I’m going to buy it and can cold steep it in summer.
