i had this one first thing this morning. It wasn’t quite what i expected…i was drinking it at the same time as one of the keemuns i picked out and then we got distracted with life. Not a bad cup but in comparison, the other was better. Will rate and describe better next time i have it haha

Yep, I find the same. Goes better as a tumbler tea IMO.

Took this in my travel mug to see the boyfriend. I think I like it better this way.
More astringent, but it seems to suit the setting of a tumbler better than a mug somehow. Also, the yam note, and something molasses like really came out. Rating bump.

This Assam casts off scents of baked goods, citrus a hint of sweet potato, cocoa and spice.

It brews to a deep red orange.

The first sip is full of spice over the deeper tones of malt, mixed with cocoa, charred crust and a bit of sweet potato. This opens to a mix of red fruits and citrus blended with molasses, malt and a bit of bread. This one has a dense mouth feel. There is a mild bitterness that tempers the sharp fruit. It is not overly sweet. This is not an Assam that is rich in honey or dried fruit. In fact the fruit references a tart red wine. What it does have is a good blend of malt, spice, tart fruit and grainy bread notes. It reminds me a little of pumpernickel, or a dark crust artisinal brown bread. It’s a little like breakfast in a cup.

Edit. The second steep is a little sweeter with a bit of apricot among the other fruit, spice, bread, cocoa and molasses notes.
