drank Numalighur Assam by The Tea Zone
115 tasting notes

I’ve been very impressed with this assam. I think this is just a special batch since I’ve had assam teas from this source before and was not particularly impressed. But this one is excellent each time I have it. The malty and caramel flavoring is really nice, it’s smooth and bold but no astringency with a 2 min. steep. I’m enjoying it immensely this afternoon!

I love loose leaf tea! While I gravitate towards black teas, I’m getting more into oolongs, greens and whites. I’m always looking for great fresh new teas to try. This tends to lead to the problem of ordering more even though I already have way too much.

My collection of tea has kind of gotten out of hand. After taking over several kitchen cupboards, it has spilled into the back hallway now with containers of tea stacked up there. I think I need more hours in the day to drink it all.

I’m also a vegetarian who loves dark chocolate, photography, travel, computers, web programming, technology and cats.
