Noms. Mellow, smooth but with a little bite if left to steep for a long time. Not a bad bite, mind you. The first thing that hits is the malt and, wow. A bit of sweetness in the sip but not as strong as the malt. Can’t wait to try again with a bit shorter steep and see if that takes out the bite. Thanks, Indigobloom for sharing this one!

I think we share a tea heart Nicole :P
Seriously. Assam has been my fave for almost ten years now (odd for me, I change my mind a lot haha)

Assam is what good tea was intended to be. The rest is just fluff ;)

Oh my. This is some serious Assam nums. Very malty and with a smooth sweetness. The malt tends to fall off at the cooling end of the cup and a hint of bitter creeps in. The leaf appearance is stunning. Thanks to Indigobloom for sharing some of this delicious tea!

I oversteeped this, not sure by how long but it was pretty bitter. Adding milk and 3/4t tsp sugar helped, but it was still quite thick tasting. and malty! a baked sort of malt that emerged mid sip, not up front or at the back like most others.
Also, the leaves are quite pretty. A gorgeous mix of golden and brown leaves. Tippy!

I am confused about this tea. Maybe someone can help me out. I am not sure if it is actually the Ti Kuan Yin which is from China or the Ti Kwan Yin. The place I bought it from has it written Ti Kwan Yin. However, I am having trouble finding anything out (google) about a tea called “Ti Kwan Yin” but there is an abundance of info on the Ti Kuan Yin Oolong. Hmmmm? Any help?

Anyhow, the tea I am drinking is a little sweet, has a relatively full body and has a vegetal taste to it that lingers beyond the first sip. This tea will go bitter quickly so be aware! I am using a gaiwan which is why I only used 3 tsp of water. Lots of steeps with this Oolong.

Flavors: Sweet, Vegetal
