I was contacted this morning by the lady that I got Ebony and Ivory from a while ago now. She said that her cat has just had another litter and a new black male kitten is available if I would like him. She was so very sorry about Ebony’s passing that she made sure I was the first one she would ask. Well after many tears and a long chat with my husband we agreed to adopt the little man. We are waiting for news on his age and a picture but it gives us a chance to think of a name for him. So far in the running are Sooty and Loki. :)
This arrived last week with my first Tealux order. Assam is usually a morning style tea for me but my husband requested a black tea tonight and this one has recently been put into a clean jar ready for use.
In appearance the leaves are golden brown in colour and look long, thin and squiggly. They have a musky, wooden scent with a delicate hint of sweet malt.
The first few sips reveal a smooth yet creamy Assam of medium strength with hints of wood, musk, malt, dark treacle and raisins. It’s a little dry in the after taste but not much at all.
As it cools the sweetness increases and it gains a subtle velvety smoke trait.
A nice Assam not too dissimilar from golden Dian Hong. A winner for me and the hubby.
