drank Assam Melody by Adagio Teas
20 tasting notes

This one took me off guard. This is a very rich specimen, at least in the looks department; quick to infuse – I was afraid of overdoing it! – and surprisingly not very strong.

Heavy amber color and smells slightly smokey. Taste is very mellow — it reminds me of the Autumn Laoshan Black by Verdant, but gentler. Unfortunately, it doesn’t make much of an impact. There’s nothing wrong with it per se, but I probably won’t actually buy it (came with the Raja sampler set).

Might try 4 minutes for the first reinfusion.

EDIT: First reinfusion: yup; nope. There’s just not a whole lot in this thing.
