From Rare Tea Republic

Origin: Assam
Steep Time: 3-4 minutes
Water Temperature: 200
Tea per Cup: 1.5 teaspoons

An excellent, organic, morning tea with a uniform, black and golden tipped leaf produces an attractive, deep amber liquor with a golden rim around the cup. Spice and cocoa aromas are accurate foretastes for a bright and complex cup. This moderately brisk choice is not as malty as some and can be enjoyed with or without milk.

Enjoying this cuppa from Rare Tea Republic, a delicious and hefty assam! I was eyeing more assams in the Upton Tea catalog last night which inspired me to reach for this one. It’s cold and foggy here today. Sorry to hear about everyone’s problems with Steepster, let’s hope it gets better…

Is it a sign of illness when you read the Upton catalog with a highlighter in hand?

@gmathis: naah, it’s a sign of your excellent organization skills!

TeaBrat

LMAO- I was doing that last night

gmathis

Of course, I’m not sure why I do it…by the time I drink down my stash to an order-justifiable level, the catalog will be out of date ;)

TeaBrat

I’m thinking about getting some samples but I need to wait until pay day!

Another sample from the Rare Tea Republic, and again inspired by Amy Oh.

This is my second tea of the day, and this was very different than the Temi I had earlier. The aroma of this tea is very pleasing, with interesting spices dominating the aroma. The first sip of the tea was interesting, because I’m not very familiar with Assam teas, so the malty taste was very different for me (but in a good way). It was also interesting, because this tea is sweeter than I’m used to for the first infusion of a black tea, but that seems to typical for Indian teas.

The second infusion is very mellow, and there are soem fruity undertones present in the taste now. The tea has also developed a bit of an aftertaste which reminds me a bit of a Wuyi Oolong, but it’s a bit faint. The tea is also a bit sweeter now, which has improved how well the different flavors balance each other, making for a very pleasant cup.

More to come later.

I’ve been on a black tea binge, and was looking to expand my horizons a little bit. I had a wonderful sample of Darjeeling tea from Adagio, and then I saw that Darjeelings from RTR were getting really good reviews here on Steepster. I figured it couldn’t hurt to try some tea from them, so I looked through their stuff, and bought what sounded good.

TeaBrat

Darjeelings are not my area of expertise by far, but I do like everything I’ve purchased so far from RtR.
