Brewed long and strong, my first cup of the day. Possibly my mistake. I think I need something more ordinary to wake up my taste buds. I didn’t get any of the tobacco or smoky scent others have mentioned when I opened the tin or when I tasted it.

Which is not to say I disliked it. Not at all. I’m going to give it another chance after I finish this cup of Assam.

I did see grainy bits in the bottom of my cup. That may be the fault of my mesh strainer, but, hmmm. I examined the wet leaves from the strainer after >5 minues steeping and they were still firm and twiggy. I purposely used a larger tea ball than needed to give the leaves plenty of room to expand, and I wasn’t expecting the result I got.

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