From SpecialTeas

The combination of a delicately peppery Yunnan and a strong Assam make this tea the ideal companion to a hearty breakfast (before a strenuous day of mountain climbing).

Oh boy, this tea has character! Upon opening my sample packet, I was surprised on how fragrant the leaves were! Peppery, bready, peaty and herbal. Once steeped, the taste is bold, smoky and very peppery! On cooldown the earthiness asserts itself. Very smooth too—no bitterness and not much astringency. I guess you could call this a “piquant” breakfast blend?

(I added just a bit of milk)

Love this tea as well. It has become one of our breakfast standards. But sadly, SpecialTeas is no more. We ordered a whole pound during their final sale last winter, but when that’s gone it will be a sad day. SpecialTeas indicated they have been bought by Teevana. At first, I (naively) assumed that meant Teevana would now carry SpecialTeas products, but no. Does anyone know if Teevana (or anyone else) will be offering this tea at some point, or does another company offer a similar Yunnan / Assam blend?

Got a sampler of this yesterday and had to try it. I love Yunnan teas and also a good malty Assam. Well this tea attempts to blend both of these together and does so very well. I had never thought of combining a Chinese tea with an Indian tea but given the peppery flavor of a yunnan and a malty flavor of a good assam, this is really a winner. The resultling combination is really yummy. I think the Yunnan flavoring is slightly stronger in this than the Assam. I had forgotten the description of the tea since ordering it. Most blends involve Assam tea and given they come from India, Himalayan grown teas are usually more similar to Assams. So I was expecting this to be like an Assam. However when I smelled the aroma of the tea I was surprised to find it being more like a Yunnan. I sampled the taste and had the same reaction. It was good. I then went and looked up the description and then remembered why I had chosen it. Now I wished I had gotten a whole bag of it. This is going to go on my order list for next time.
