drank Assam Tea by Jivraj 9
335 tasting notes

I found this at my local Indian store. It’s $5 for 1 lb. It’s just your run of the mill Assam, malty and strong. I bought it for the intent to make chai blends, and it works just perfect. I might try the Taj Mahal brand next time. But this brand was just fine. It’s CTC, grainy little bits, it reminds of nigella seeds but courser. I’ve worked in a couple Indian restaurants, and never knew Assam leaves were normal, I was so used to these little pellets like this tea.

I love cooking, sleeping, reading, reggae music, and tea. I also enjoying reading about tea, the culture and ceremonies, and the diverse types.

I think most the teas I drink are 80% iced, but on some days, it’s opposite that, especially days off! I can’t believe it took me this long to try different teas. Better now than never!

Reading the reviews help guide me to the right tea. I have been turned on to so many delightful brews.

I am ALWAYS up for swapping. Just PM me.
