drank Numalighur Assam by The Tea Zone
115 tasting notes

I have tried assam teas from this source before and never found any that lit my fire. But this year’s supply of this estate tea is a winner! The leaf is small and twisted, not broken. It is described as tippy tippy and malty sweet. I have to agree, that with a bit of sweetner and my usual short steep this brews up a fantastic cup of tea. The brew is dark amber, the aroma is sweet and wonderful. I don’t add dairy, preferring to enjoy the full malty strong brew. I highly recommend this assam for assam fans.

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.
