A review: Kopili Assam Black Tea by Stash Tea

Assam (India); is one of the world’s most popular teas, and often among the best. Grown in low lying Assam region of northerneastern India, it’s typically astringent, robust, and “malty,” with an orange or red liquor; it is often mixed into “breakfast” blends, and is well suited to the addition of milk and sugar.

I steeped this fine Assam for a full five minutes; taking care to add on teaspoon of sugar (granulated) to it. I wanted to have that licorice aspect with the robust and malty that it is known for. I was not disappointed.

For five-minute brew; the tea yields a lovely darken red; and smells wonderfully robust. Upon tasting it, the malt hits you at once with the sugar surfacing nicely. I should intermingle within the cup of tea. I kept thinking if I added more sugar I could accomplish that sugary kind of coffee/tea Moroccan tends to favor. In truth, I know not, I imagine they like.

This is indeed finest of tea. After having the likes of some horrid musty and moisten earth kind of tea, this is a welcoming home of sort. A much needed troth. I am saying I like this Kopili Assam tea.

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
