For no other reason than convention, I usually don’t brew a pot of Assam after lunch. I brewed this sample this evening and am sipping my way through it now, looking for a kick to keep my writing going for a few more hours. You might mistake this Assam for a strong Ceylon black tea; while it tastes like an Assam, it isn’t too malty up front and it has a pleasant backbone to it that lasts for seconds. It’s not your strong, malty, smack-you-on-both-cheeks Assam! I would consider this tea both in the morning or, unlike other Assams, later in the day, too.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 15 sec

I do like a good smack in the cheeks though!

Bio

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.
