From Capital Tea Ltd.

Medium sized black leaves with a few golden tips. These early season leaves produce a particularly strong and concentrated tea liquor with intense deep malty flavour and aroma notes reminiscent of bitter-sweet chocolate. An excellent tea for those looking for a strong cup to enjoy either with or without milk

I got this delicious sample from Dexter3657. This is quite good, and I may consider a purchase of this if they have it at the tea festival. It brews up to a gorgeous garnet colour on the first steep. Less deep on the second steep. Whatever astringency is in the tea, I didn’t notice it, but I slurped this one back pretty fast. Also, I’m not always very good at picking up on various notes in a tea if I don’t pay attention.

I liked this one, and see this easily fitting in my morning tea routine.

Thank you Dexter!


:)) This isn’t my favorite from Capital Tea, but I’m glad that you like it. I really like almost everything I got from Capital Enjoy the tea festival – hope you pick up some great teas.


Whatever I pick up you know I’m gonna share, despite your ever expanding cupboard :)

mmm thanks for sharing this one with me dexter! This brings me officially to 149 – so i’m under my black friday goal and consider myself to be officially working towards tea purchases. 1 sipdown = 1 tea i can purchase lol.

This is a pretty decent assam. It’s got a bit of astringency to it, but not so much that it’s less enjoyable. There’s a teeeeny bit of sweetness hiding in the sip as well, it’s not a malty assam. :) i like this one!

I’ve been really happy with the teas I ordered from Capital Tea Ltd.
This one is not quite to my tastes, I’ve decided that Assam isn’t my favorite style of black tea.
Having said that, I think this is a nice quality Assam, with a nice balance of flavor and astringency.


GASP you just send all the assams to me haha


I’m quite sure there is some of this in the package I sent you. Will keep you in mind if I have others to pass on.

This one came to me from Sil who got it from Dexter.
I accidentally ruined the first cup. I was also making Tony a cup of the Earl, & he likes a spoon of sugar, but I accidentally put his sugar in my cup of tea! Yuck! I tried to drink it anyway, but I have this weird problem, which is when I put sugar in my tea, I can’t taste the sweetness of it. It only ruins the flavor of the tea.
My 2nd cup was much better, sans sugar. This is bold, a little astringent & slightly bitter, and not very malty, so it’s probably never going to be a favorite, but it was still quite drinkable, & the most robust cup I’ve had today, so at least there is that. :)
And it’s a sipdown!


I completely agree about the sugar. I’m forever puzzled by people who say a bit of sweetener brings out the flavouring more. For me it just turns the tea astringent.


Sugar brings out flavours for me when it’s a flavoured tea….but in a straight tea? Ick

Terri HarpLady

Yeah, it adds astringency & acidity too. The funny thing is, I can’t taste the sweetness of it, especially the rock crystal stuff. I can taste maple syrup, however, although I only occasionally add it.


I only really know that German sugar, that people seem to think is superior for tea. It’s made from beet sugar and to me that’s just normal ordinary every-day sugar. :) It’s cane sugar that’s the fancy-schmancy stuff around these parts. :)
I’ve tried sometimes with a little bit of liquid honey, but that just makes the tea taste like honey, which wasn’t really the purpose either. I’ve given up and accepted that I don’t like sweetener in my tea. (Strangely, though, I rather like a honey flavoured tea. I don’t know why this is different for me)

Terri HarpLady

I love teas that taste like honey & bee pollen, but could never have honey in my tea.
Tony adores that German Rock sugar, it’s considered fancy in a rustic sort of way, I guess.
