91
drank Assam Gold Rain by Teavana
11 tasting notes

I bought this not knowing what to expect when making a Teavana order, just trying to reach the level for free shipping. I saw it and the price wasn’t outrageous, so I tossed it in.

This is my new favorite tea among teas that “taste like tea.” (As opposed to flavored teas like rose, or jasmines, or even oolongs which have such a different flavor profile.) Malty and unbelievably SMOOOOOOTH. I had no idea assam could taste this good.

I wrote a bit more on it in my overview of recent teas I liked that “taste like tea” at my teablog: http://teawritings.com/?p=127
