From Fusion Teas

A classical Assam from the second plucking period from one of the top plantations of the region. For almost 100 years now, excellent teas have been produced here, just like our quality with its wiry, colorful leaf and the strong and spicy flavor with a rich malty character. A real delicacy, either drunk pure or with Kluntje (rock sugar) and cream, like in Eastern Frisia. Should definitely form part of any upscale tea assortment.

Ingredients: Organic Assam Black Tea

1.5 tsp – 203 degrees – 4-5 min

I was craving a tea that was grassy today. I thought of this one and it was perfect even though I’ve never had it before. It was actually a free sample in my smallish Fusion order (sale!) and it’s the first I tried. Go figure. The dry leaves certainly smell like dry hay! I’d say the teaspoon and a half and five minutes is way too much though. I went with a teaspoon and 1/3 and around four minutes steeping and it was a bit too astringent. I needed the briskness anyway! It has that grassy slightly malty taste… full flavor! The cup is a deep red color. This was nice to try but I feel like it is too similar to the Ovation black teas I have a ton of. I adore Fusion’s blends though. Just beware of Fusion’s recommended steep time. Perfect for my craving though!

And sorry Steepster, but I think I’ll avoid you until my Butiki Amoda box shows up! (I don’t want to know the surprise until they are in my hands and I promise I won’t talk about the specifics until way after everyone else has been talking about them.) I couldn’t resist special Butiki holiday teas so I just got the Amoda box for this month. Can’t wait!
