drank Assam TGFOP by CJay Tea
398 tasting notes

When I first got this tea In was a little dissappointed as I quite like their English Breakfast and I love their Chai, but this tea when I brewed it my normal Assam way at about 92/3 min was relatively weak and dissapointing. Before I gave it away, I decided to give it another chance and brewed it at a slightly higher temperature for around 5 minute, like Ahmad’s Halmari Assam and it redeemed itself.

This one is a fruity, spicy, malty Assam. And has a deep almost rosewood red liqueur.
The scent is of cherries, sour plum, and citrus notes, malt , biscuit and spice.

The taste is relatively smooth with all of the above flavours, a touch of molasses for sweetness a very faint hint of floral, and only a very faint bitterness from the malt. This one is mostly red fruit, spice, biscuit and malt. It’s not an amazing Assam but it is a decent budget option. I’m glad I gave it a second chance!.

Otherwise they sell some of their teas at Whole Foods, Starskey’s, and Highland Farms that I know of.
