This assam is a good malty choice but less favored than some of the other excellent Assam choices from TeaSource.com

Can find this on their web site (www.teazone.com) but got this tea from their tea room recently. The leaves appear slightly oxidized and give this hard to find tea a delicious taste!

Made this an iced tea on this fabulous summer day. This makes an awesome iced tea! Make enough for a 16oz mug, add 8oz of water to steep it in. After 3 min. I add sweetener of choice and then pour it over a tall glass or mug of rinsed ice cubes. This melts down to be about the right dilution and makes it ice cold in a minute or so. Yum!

Started my day with this #tea with that distinct muscatel flavoring.

This is my fave Assam that is currently available from the TeaSource.com. Their Special Reserve is a shade better but that is not available so this is the next best that I’ve found. I steep all assams for 2 minutes to avoid any astringency.

For a Ceylon tea, which I generally find boring and not very noteworthy, this one is pretty good. But I still have yet to find a Ceylon tea that makes me say “Wow!”

A good assam, not quite as good IMHO as the Satrupa Estate or Special Reserve from TeaSource.com.

Starting my Sunday with this Nilgiri. A nice full bodied smooth tea.

Profile

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.
