drank Leo Assam Tea by Newby Tea
5 tasting notes

s the leaves are slightly broken, this will lead to a faster steep time than what you might expect from fuller-leaf teas, and I adjusted my usual brewing time accordingly. To my roughly 150 mL teapot, I added roughly a tablespoon of leaves, and allowed them to steep for roughly 45 seconds. The resulting brew had a beautiful, intense red colour, and strong notes of honey and molasses drifted up from my cup. The first sip really surprised me with a taste I hadn’t expected: plum! The tea is actually quite fruity, though definite tones of molasses are also at play. The after taste was faintly sweet and remained slightly thick on my tongue with no astringency whatsoever.

My name is Robin, and I’m a 23 year old Earth Sciences student currently living in Michigan. As a science major, I haven’t gotten to write “creatively” in literally about 5 years! It used to be such a huge passion of mine, so I’m rather looking forward to developing this blog in hopes of sharpening my writing skills once more. :-) I’m a bit of an odd ball, and I try to heap enthusiasm and joy into everything I do in life.

My interests include.. science! Math, geocaching <- auto correct wanted to change that to “poaching” for me.. WTF?, derpin with my boyfriend, watching Parks and Recreation, putting on extremely scary movies for fun background noise while doing housekeeping, various computer nerdery, CATS!!, cooking, baking, making a freaking delicious cup of tea like 5 times a day, collecting tea mugs (I have a weird obsession with containers), and shamefully watching ASMR videos in my downtime to give me those fun head tingles. When I think of more stuff I’ll add it here!
