Had a heaping teaspoon of this in 8 oz water directly after my French Vanilla Assam from 52 teas as a sort of comparison, if you will…I know they’re different animals but they fill the same niche in my life and one has to prevail.
This one wins on scent of the dry leaf…but it is a much thinner mouthfeel than the assam. I think that could be remedied with milk and sugar, though, and maybe doing longer steeps, as I did have to increase the assam to 5 minute steeping to get that mouthfeel.
I think for today the Assam is winning, though…good thing it’s being reblended..

A few of my favorite teas (in no particular order):

*Dessert flavored blacks
*Breakfast blends
*Virtually any black tea (but lapsang/keemun!)
*Dancong oolong
*Sencha
*Dragonwell

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
