I’m working my way through several samplers of Assams and Darjeelings from Upton. Perhaps I needed to let this pot steep a bit longer, but I’m not picking up the malty hint mentioned in its description. Instead of Assam malt, the cup is robust, but a bit more like a robust Ceylon instead of a more traditional Assam. Very nice wine notes finish it off. While it’s not what I would describe as a malty Assam, it’s very nice.

Boiling 3 min, 45 sec

I’m a single dude approaching the age when I can no longer refer to myself as a “dude” without general snickering commencing. I am a computational research specialist/data scientist/system administrator currently working at a large public university in Texas where I am also working on a Ph. D. I’m in denial that my puppy is 10 years old and getting arthritic. I really like to grow things but I love to travel.
