drank Kalami Assam by Ahmad Tea
124 tasting notes

This is good, but nothing special. I steeped it with a little bit of rock sugar, and decided not to add cream (I don’t think it needs it, and I think that would dilute the flavor). This is the first time I’ve had Assam tea. I just read on Wikipedia that English and Irish breakfast teas usually have some Assam leaves. Right now I think I like this much more than the breakfast teas I’ve had bagged (no surprise). I’m not sure if this is because my feelings about black breakfast tea are changing, or if loose leaf is simply that much better than bagged tea. Despite my positive impression of this, I don’t like it as much as chai, green, or mate tea.

(Tea from silentrequiem. Thanks!)

Bio

I started drinking loose leaf tea in December 2011. I usually use Teavana’s Perfect TeaMaker at home, and their Remi Mug at work. Some day I would like to have a cast iron set… a red one with dragons!
