When I first started drinking tea regularly, it was Assam teas that brought me in. This is a perfect example of why they hooked me!

This tea is still one of my favorites. I purchased a large quantity of it back in 2018 and it is holding up well, even four years after picking.

This is a malty, full-bodied Assam tea, with hints of oats and caramel in the flavor. An excellent breakfast tea and a delight for any Assam fans.

My tea habits generally depend on my mood and the season but, in general, my preferred teas are black teas, especially those grown in Sri Lanka and India. I will occasionally drink other types, though.

Unless noted in my review, I brew my tea western style and do not use additives (milk/cream, sugar, etc.).

I am definitely not an expert when it comes to tea, so I apologize if my reviews differ from the experiences you’ve had with any of the teas I have logged.

Please feel free to contact me and let me know if you have a favorite that I have to try! :)
