Another not-overly-malty-Assam that nonetheless is a very compelling and delicious tea. I am continuing my run of brewing pots of Assam late in the afternoon to give me enough caffeine to punch through the evening hours, and this is today’s pot. The first thing I noticed about it was the color: the pot immediately turned a dark coppery caramel color and I thought I was going to have a deeply malty Assam on my lips. This tea isn’t overly malty, though. Unlike some of the other Assams I’ve tried recently that taste a bit like a nice Ceylon, this tea does not. It stands on its own, clearly an Assam, but not a traditional Assam. After a brisk body, it finishes with a mouthful of spice, not overly spicy, but rather politely so.

I’m a single dude approaching the age when I can no longer refer to myself as a “dude” without general snickering commencing. I am a computational research specialist/data scientist/system administrator currently working at a large public university in Texas where I am also working on a Ph. D. I’m in denial that my puppy is 10 years old and getting arthritic. I really like to grow things but I love to travel.
