From two leaves and a bud

Sure, you can sip Assam for breakfast. We encourage it. But we’re not going to call this tea the classic “English Breakfast,” because that typically refers to a blend of lesser quality teas. These are big, black, organic tea leaves grown in Assam, India, where hot days and cool nights bring out a rich, full flavor.

Kind of a Twilight Zone tea day … without looking, I grabbed an open packet of one of my Upton samples. Not sure which one. Did a sloppy, untimed 5 minute-ish steep, and it was phenomenally good, cocoa-y, but completely unlike either of the two samples I know are open and in my kitchen. One of them evidently has a pleasantly Jekyll-and-Hyde personality, but I couldn’t tell you which if my life depended on it.

Surely this has never happened to you.

At least this one I can identify by box and bag. Most of my descriptions of this one have leaned to “wheaty” and “toasty,” but today I’m adding “raisiny.”

Funny what the addition or omission of a degree or two or a leaf or two can do, huh?

Confusedly yours,

maybe someone else opened the sample bag before you? :0

Not knowing which tea I’m drinking? No. Stumbling upon a new and delicious expression of a tea by paying no attention to the steeping parameters?… all the time :P

Today is the first time I ever went to the coffee shop in the library at my school. I was fully prepared to drink coffee because I just want to be warm, but then I saw the display of about 12 types of two leaves and a bud pyramid sachets.

This just feels like Assam weather. I got a 16 oz cup and took 2 bags. I feel like the cashier was judging me but yeah, 1 sachet in 2 cups of water? No thanks, man.

After steeping, I added some milk and waited for it to cool.

YUM. While plain assam was pretty good, I could only stand it when it was way cooled. With milk,I am loving it hot. It’s rich and hearty and just so comfy right now.

Good to know for two bucks I can pick up a decent cup on campus, though I have to say some of the specialty coffee drinks sound amazing. But this is nearly $2 cheaper and awesome for when I either drink all the tea I bring, or run out of time to make some.

In fact I am almost out now and I want more and it’s going to take a lot of willpower to go straight home and make loose tea, hahaha.

Ellyn I have had good luck with two leaves and a bud. (I think they now call themselves two leaves tea company). Their jasmine green tea is one of my staples.

Perfect for an afternoon pot of tea, served with a bit of almond milk.

Speaking of Assam, here we have an Assam-esque tea which really is from Assam! The Two Leaves (formerly known as Two Leaves and a Bud) company offers a 15 sachet sampler set containing three varieties, one of which is organic Assam.

The sachet places the nice-looking leaves of this tea in proper relief, but the flavor of the tea is not all that great, it seems to me. Just another mid-level Assam. It brews up reddish amber and turns caramel colored upon the addition of cream. The tea is organic, and tastes perfectly fine but leaves a slight scratchiness in the back of my throat after swallowing.

I would do 205F and 3 min. Works most of the time for Assam

Don’t have that much experience with Assam’s but this tea has a pleasant bitterness and definite maltiness that people are referring to. Very good breakfast tea (to compliment the part of the name) and gives a refreshing “wake-up sleepyhead” boost. Both dry leaves and steeped it smells very enticing.
