This is my first experience with Assam that isn’t CTC. Very robust and malty. As recommended from Upton, this would be very tasty in chai. I must admit, it’s a lot better than the stuff at the India grocery that’s all CTC. More layers of the flavors. Has a coffee like bite to it. Doesn’t seem to stand up for rebrewing as well after third time. All the initials after all the different Assams is overwhelming to me, but I googled and found out what it meant! Yay! I love how much there is to learn with each different variety of tea, it’s like a rabbit hole. Oh tea, I love how complex you are!

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.
