A tasty wuyi – a beautiful roasted taste.

The one pot of assam wasn’t enough for this sleepy grad student, so I ordered a jin xuan – the “nantou dawn”. The first steep was UNBELIEVABLE – it was so sweet and buttery. After I deplete my home stash of various milky oolong, I’m totally stocking up on this as my at-home-jin-xuan.

I headed to Teahouse Kuan Yin to get some studying done. I started my study session with a pot of this assam that caught my eye because it was on the limited edition teas list. It was recommended to be taken without milk, but I need a bit of whole milk with my afternoon black tea. There wasn’t anything that really stood out to me compared to other assams that I have had, but it did help me get over my afternoon slump.

drank PG Tips by PG Tips

I ran out of my Extra Strong Black Tea by Marks & Spencer, and since importing it is ridiculously expensive — I’m switching over to PG Tips (available much more easily in the US, and can be purchased at World Market to add to my explorer points).

I’ve been having my A&D’s assam with milk for my afternoon tea, but since I’m travelling for the next few weeks I decided it was easier and just as tasty to snag a box of PG Tips. <3


It was better than other teabag blacks, but nothing special IMHO!


Ha, everyone seems to be loving Marks and Spencer teas. Don’t you have their stores over in the US? I live in Eastern Europe and we still have plenty of them.

drank Quangzhou Milk Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

I still need to do more comparisons between this and ATR’s milk oolong. But both are delicious.

Good morning. Time for a cup of caravan tea to wake me up.

drank Bombay Chai by Mighty Leaf Tea

There’s a particular spice that I can’t put my finger on that really stands out. I’m not sure how I feel about it yet – I’ll have to ask my friend to “acquire” more of it at his workplace for further tasting.

I’ll smuggle you some Chai from my work as well. :)

Tea logging has become a rare event since graduate school, but I try to add notes whenever I try something new.

My favorite teas are milk oolong, jasmine tea, genmaicha, and an assam with milk.
