Does the fact that this tea comes from Assam make it technically an assam? I haven’t had enough assams to tell by taste, and the labeling doesn’t really say. To me the flavor falls somewhere between an English breakfast and a darjeeling. A hearty tea with just a hint of earth and fruit undertones. And orthodox is right — I feel like it’s “normal” enough that I could serve this to non-tea addicts without raising eyebrows. Certainly not the most exotic of the Tealet teas, but a solid offering.

Not Really My Style:
spices (except for ginger. ginger rocks)
chai (because, you know, the spices)
rooibos (I don’t get it. Everyone seems psyched for it. Not me).
those smoky teas, like lapsang souchong, though once in a while I’ll need something really strong and then I like them.
