I wouldn’t call this a smooth cup of tea, the Assam in this blend gives it quite the metallic aftertaste. But this is quite drinkable, the Darjeeling in the blend smooths out the rough edges of the Assam. I’m not sure I’d like either tea on its own but together it works. It’s not very complex, just coppery and astringent with a pleasant finish. I’m not sure I’d buy this again, but will do my best to sip down this bag.

Flavors: Astringent, Metallic

I started drinking more tea about 10 years ago when I found that even my half -caf coffee was making me jittery and then sleepy after the caffeine wore off. While I started out with mostly Teavana, but soon expanded my tea cupboard to include lapsang souchon, pu-erh, Assam, and other strong black teas. I do enjoy oolongs, green, and other teas, as well as a nice tisane for an evening cuppa.
I’m not fond of jasmine or bergamont teas, though I’ll try anything once.
I am an avid traveler, hiker, soccer player/watcher.
I love trying new tea in new places, if you see something in my cupboard you want to try, hit me up for a swap!
