From T2

The T2 version of the classic Indian tea category. A dark, dry twisted leaf with golden tips produces a deep burgundy infusion with robust flavours. A rich, deep, malty flavour with medium tannins has a touch of sharpness at the finish. This is the most full-bodied of our Assams and its intense flavour can convert even die-hard coffee drinkers.

Ingredients: Assam black tea

Brewing guide: 1 tsp per cup, 2-4 min, 100 C (212 F)

Summer Vacation! New month, new theme! This month I’ll be taking a world tea tour through my tea collection by sampling teas from various different locales (the tentative plan is a short perusal of a few of my Indian teas, a longer sampling from my rather large Chinese and Japanese tea collection, and then some Taiwanese/Thai/Vietnamese teas to end off the month). There may be a few other random stops in there too, depending on what I have laying around and can find the time to get to… who knows! But I’m definitely starting off with my least favorite, mostly to clear it out of the cupboard. It came in a T2 black tea sampler set, and I already know this particular kind of black tea really isn’t much my thing… an Indian assam.

It’s a really strong cup… I can smell how strong and malty it is before even taking a sip. Sure enough, this is the sort of black tea that is just a bit on the dark and robust side for my tastes; very malty, with some slight burnt toast notes, and tannic to the point of having that astringent bite left in the aftertaste.

This is the kind of cuppa that I personally need to take with some milk and honey.
