4 Tasting Notes

Really one of my favorite Assam’s. Clean distinct tea. Bit bitter and I like to overbrew but works well for the lunch tea. I am yet to find a better Assam but my quest is never ending.

Good quality tea with excellent character and distinct smoky flavor, not quite strong as blacks from India, but it is not mellow as many Chinese teas that I have tried. Excellent price. I use it for the afternoon 5o’clock brew.

Really good strong tea. Do pay attention to the brewing times it can get bitter. It has excellent character, distinct woody scent, it has that bitter taste that I appreciate in real teas. Well worth the purchase to wake yourself up in the mornings.

As good as it gets for my taste and I tried Harney Decaf Assam, English Teastore Breakfast Decaf. This one has a full taste, stronger than any other Decaf listed in my tasting and I really like malty feel. The only reason, I do not give it perfect score because I am still looking for the punchier decaf, with a bit of bitterness to it.
