Tea #5, 2015 Asian Tea tasting event hosted by me:
This was the 2015 harvest that came with the rewards from Kickstarter and I must say that it was very tricky to identify or figure this tea out. I used water at 210f for 300 seconds and the liquid was lighter than a black tea should be. While I hate Assam tea, there is a clear Assam like taste that is present in this tea but it is much smoother and leaves behind that bitterness that the coffee drinkers can have because I don’t want it. Not something I would drink often but it is something to expand my tea drinking choice habits. Rather pleased that this wasn’t a dark, strong, bitter tasting tea even if I expected that.
