drank Golden Assam by Rishi Tea
7 tasting notes

I originally tried brewing this tea just under five minutes (following Rishi’s suggestions), but it was too astringent and a bit bitter. After reading some about assam teas, I now steep it just under 3 minutes, and it brews strong, has a sweetness to it (raisin/date), and an acceptable amount of astringency. I enjoy this tea a great deal.

Boiling 2 min, 45 sec
