drank Organic Assam by Harney & Sons
116 tasting notes

An Assam morning. Began with my true love Taylors of Harrowgate Scottish Breakfast, proceeded to their Pure Assam for second cup with no changes on either.

I am being assisted by Angus the Cat Who Will Have His Way, so hope I can finish this note.

The packaging on the front of the sample says “Revitalizing” and on the back it says “Strong and Malty.” First couple of sips confirm the strong and revitalizing parts, although this IS my 3rd cup of tea this morning. I am still struggling with the “malty” part. To me that suggests sweetness. This is smooth and mellow and pleasant, but so far I am not detecting sweetness specifically, or any dramatic differences among my 3 cups of Assam/Assam blends this morning.

I need to change my ratings on a couple of others, I see.

This makes me wonder if Angus the Cat Who Will Have His Way might be distantly related to Luna the Cat Who Must Walk On All The Buttons…

I am certain the relationship is not so distant. Either that or they’re texting each other.

That isn’t Angus; nor is it Merle, Finn, or Dulcie. It’s a very focused Scottish wildcat.

More later.
