I stopped into Peet’s and got this on my way to work. Not sure if it is EXTRA fancy but it seems to be pretty good. ;-) I’ve definitely had some assams that were maltier and richer than this one but it’s good to know I can get a decent cup of tea when I’m out and about. I am pretty sure I could not drink this one plain. It needed a decent amount of soymilk to make it smooth and mellow out the tang.
Assam Extra Fancy
While Assam teas form the backbone of many of the world’s popular blends, an exceptional cup of pure Assam is a rare find. This high-grade tea has a distinctly malty fragrance, the distinguishing characteristic of teas from the Assam region. It makes a sturdy, pungent, yet lightly sweet cup of lingering depth.
