Decided to give my taste buds a weary Wednesday pick-me-up by trying something new. Dry leaves are small and thin, but they pack nice and densely in the pouch. Does that make sense? Lots of blonde tips.
First thing I noticed was this was a very “juicy” Assam. I can catch the tones that made the Upton folks call it raisiny. It has strengthened significantly since it has cooled and I’m nearing the end of my 12-oz. tumbler. I think it’ll take milk nicely. Pretty good caffeine kick, too.
