The dry tea fooled me when I opened the sampler…I’d have sworn it was an Earl Grey. A very fruity, floral smell. However, its definitely a bold and malty Assam. This tea expresses the epitome of Assam teas in my opinion; I just wish I liked them more than I do ;-) Personally, I’d love to dump some Chai spice in to this…it’d make a fantastic traditional Chai.

I remember when I discovered that there was more to tea than hot or iced. I was given a loose tea sampler (M.T.W.) and a stainless steel tea ball as a Christmas gift many years ago. That was the start of what will be a life-long love of fine tea. I discovered Steepster from a blog entry on the Mark. T. Wendell website…and have, from Steepster, discovered even more fine teas and vendors. I decided to post my thoughts in the hope that others discover a good, fine tea.
