From TeaGschwendner

Don’t let the small leaves fool you! This coppery red and biscuity Assam is rich with all the right notes of toffee and earthy tobacco. Possessing the perfect bite of astringency at the finish, this strong black tea calls out for a touch of cream and sugar.

Preparation: One heaping teaspoon per 8oz cup of filtered, boiling water. Allow to brew 5 minutes.

My brother left a bag of this here at the house last week while visiting. He somehow ended up with it, and didn’t like it much, I guess.

This produces an amazingly black cup of tea. I actually broke down, broke my rule of thumb, and put some dairy in this just because it is so strong and has so much bite.

If you like really classic, strong black tea, this is the way to go.

While he was visiting, I boiled some of it in milk with chai spices and it makes AMAZING chai.

So I drank a cup of this earlier and it was bitter and I hated it.
But I had one cup left so I super-steeped it and then added ice for instant ice tea, and it’s much better.

Also, I realized that Second Flush might mean darjeeling so maybe that’s why it’s a little bitter? I probably should have steeped at 95 instead of 100. Oh well! I’m happier with it then I was, which is good because I expect good things from TeaG teas!

F*ck yeah, sipdown! 193!

There is something about this tea that reminds me of “red rose.” I picked this one up on a whim when i was in Chicago just to see how one of their assams might taste. The instructions say 5mins brewing, but i have yet to try this @ 5 mins. I can’t imagine how this would taste at 5 mins. At 3 it’s a little strong and edging towards bitter. I’ll be sharing this with a few people though just to see if maybe there will be love for this one at someone else’s hands.

This is a favorite of mine to drink in the morning with toast. It has a nice grassy note with and earthy flavor and sweetness of carmel. Great tea for the price.
