Assam tea of the morning here. 3/4 of the Upton tea sampler. The leaves are very slender and broken (GBOP = golden broken orange pekoe)
This is pretty good, I wish I had the foresight to try it plain before I dumped in my usual soymilk that I drink with assams. I’m getting a lot of malty flavor with a bit of chocolate and a trace of bitterness in the finish. I wonder why you need your leaves broken if you’re drinking the tea in loose leaf form… anyway this is pretty good but a bit pungent and strong even with the addition of soymilk. An eye opener for sure but not something I would need to have around on a permanent basis.
I hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend!
