Man do I love these assams! Barbara threw this in as a sample with my last order and is it goooooood! Definitely on the list for next time. I’ve read sooo many conflicting views on black teas vs green for example and just want to know if I’m getting the polyphenols and the theanine etc. from the blacks. Anyone know? I love the pick me up and just savor the maltiness that pours out-yum! Very very good. I’m not one to double steep blacks but I do for all my greens oolongs and whites; I just feel that blacks can only put out one good one…anyone else feel this way?

I’m really not sure about this one. Trying it straight up, it’s very interesting. The description says jammy-like taste to it, but I’m not too sure if that’s what I’m getting or not. I think I’m getting more of a floral quality to it I think.

There’s just something about this tea that I’m not crazy about. I will probably finish it, but honestly it’s not for me… Even with milk and sugar I don’t find this tea to be overly exciting…
Oh well… Maybe I’ll try it in one of my new Gaiwans and see if that helps!

Hmm, not really feeling this one. I think maybe my water was a touch too hot? This smells a bit fruity but mostly tastes bitter with a touch of astringency and soapiness. A bit floral on the finish.

I added a bit of sugar and maybe it helps, but I’m not excited by this cup.

Interesting. I’m going to play with the steeping a bit before passing judgment.
