Today was my last serving from my supply of this really nice assam. I like a malty non-astringent assam and this one is a good one. The leaf is a larger leaf particle that is not so broken. It has some tippy leaf but not a lot. The flavor at 2 minutes is delicious, no bitterness and a strong malty brew. For a cold overcast day… this hits the spot! Yumm! I see TeaSource is out of stock on this one and not sure if any will come in for 2009. My 2008 supply ended today. :(

Bio

I love loose leaf tea! While I gravitate towards black teas, I’m getting more into oolongs, greens and whites. I’m always looking for great fresh new teas to try. This tends to lead to the problem of ordering more even though I already have way too much.

My collection of tea has kind of gotten out of hand. After taking over several kitchen cupboards, it has spilled into the back hallway now with containers of tea stacked up there. I think I need more hours in the day to drink it all.

I’m also a vegetarian who loves dark chocolate, photography, travel, computers, web programming, technology and cats.
