drank Assam Gold by The Tea Merchant
1623 tasting notes

Many, many morning delays and distractions (mostly me just sp..a..c..i..n..g out) so this steeped a couple minutes longer than intended and has a little bitter bite to it now. If I had milk handy, it’d be just fine. Still a good medium-weight, medium kick assam. Have really enjoyed my Tea Merchant samples.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
