The morning cuppa. Not my very favorite tea due the extreme briskness, but it has a bit of oompf for the morning time. Better with some soymilk to mellow it out. Someday I’d like to try some other teas from Fortnum & Mason.

“Tippy” in any tea generally means highly tasty! And it’s just fun to say “tippy.”

Another tea from NofarS, this was my first cup of the day.
A nice bold Assam, I steeped the leaf twice, first @ 3 min & then again @ 5. It’s been a few hours since I drank it, so all I can really say is I enjoyed it & it was nicely satisfying. Thanks Nofar!

This is a bold Assam. Not for it the mellowness of meeker Assams, or the timidness of Assam blends. You will get a sharp caffeine kick from drinking it, and the malty flavours are coupled with a brisk bitterness and a notable astringency that loves to be tamed by milk-and-sugar. Today I’m drinking it with a bit of maple syrup, since I want to feel at least some of its invigorating bitterness, and no milk. It is a great morning companion that I may have to relegate to the office, since it is getting woefully neglected at home.
The caddy is the wonderful F&M caddy (very beautiful, extremely functional, great for stacking), and the dry leaves are a mosaic of warm walnut brown with flashes of gold in between. It smells deliciously dusky, as if warning of you of the potent kick that it holds.

For now there’s a ceasefire, which is good. Let’s see how long it holds. Yesterday wasn’t great with two terrorist attacks in Jerusalem, and a coworker’s son that is in critical condition in hospital. He’s been stabilized, but is still far from recovery.
Where there is tea there is hope.

Sil

I’m so sorry too hear about your coworkers son. I hope for all of you, the ceasefire lasts. :(

DigniTea

Thinking ceasefire and peaceful resolution. Be well and be safe.

TheTeaFairy

That’s so sad, hoping for your friend’s son to pull through…wishing for peace every single day.

gmathis

Some days you need a tea that is neither mellow nor meek! Glad you have one handy!

boychik

Thinking of you and people of Israel . I have rallies in New York. Wishing this madness to be over

NofarS

I wish it will all be over too. We’ve had the first quiet day in three weeks, as the ceasefire seems to be holding this time. My friend’s son is out of the ICU but nowhere near getting released from hospital. But at least he’s doing better and is alive, so we are hoping for the best.

My go-to morning tea. This stuff’s aroma and taste could seriously raise the dead, goes straight into the synapses and provides a needed, very decent caffeine kick.

Favourite Assam, no doubt. When I first tried it, it was like finding the answer to a question I hadn’t even asked myself, because as much as I’ve always loved Assam, I never thought it could get as good as this. I mean, it was already crazy good, but this is exceedingly crazy good!

Not sure if it’s because Assam is the tea variety I’ve reached to most frequently since I started this journey, but I’m not sure I’d describe this as ‘bold’. It sure is the strongest black tea I’ve tasted (not getting into smoked varieties), but this is what I’ve come to expect of morning time teas: appropriate caffeine amount and intense, comforting taste.

I brew it with boiling water for the whole 5 minutes recommended on the tin and add a splash of evaporated milk, then stir. If I’m feeling in need of some cajoling out of going back to bed, I drop a couple lumps of rock brown sugar into the cup before I pour the water and leave sugar, tea and milk be, à la East Frisian. I’m that weak-willed.
