818 tasting notes

This is the first assam that I have had. I enjoyed this, but it is very hard to describe. I guess the only way to describe it is malty flavour.
I have no other assam to compare it to, but I am sure it is not top quality. However, I do enjoy the flavour.
This is quite good, and like all the other Bulk Barn purchases, very inexpensive for the quality you get.

Not familiar with Bulk Barn — chain store? mall store?

I think it is a chain store. It is a store that has everything in bulk in bins and then you take the amount that you want from each bin. They mostly sell candies, spices, dry goods, stuff like that.

Bulk tea is a good Cheapster Steepster way to experiment! Not too many bulk options in our neck of the woods, but local health food place has by-the-ounce jars of a dozen or so varieties.

Hello,
I am a nurse, I love to do so many things: reading, card making, scrapbooking, photography, playing with my nieces, shopping, and of course TEA!

I only started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I had a DavidsTea for the first time and have been obsessed ever since! My favourite is probably white but I have black every morning to wake me up! I enjoy most flavours out there! My favourite flavours are nutty, fruity, chocolate, jasmine, tropical.

Most of my teas I rate at 90 and above, and would re-stock these teas.
Anything under 90 I probably wouldn’t re-stock unless I found a great price.
