From Young Mountain Tea

The strongest of Indian teas, this whole leaf black comes from India’s first tea region. The tropical Assam plain that stretches between the Himalayas and the Indian Ocean is also home to the only other known indigenous tea plant outside of China. Its full body produces a richly, malty, robust liquor that takes well to milk and sugar.

I’m still working on my stash from the 2015 Vancouver Tea Festival, luckily they seem to still be keeping well. The Young Mountain booth had some great samples and were promoting yearly visits to India for tea related tours which sounds pretty cool. I’d love to do that one day. This tea really stood out with it’s rich earthy flavour and deep amber hue. The tasting note describes it as hailing from the tropical Assam plain that stretches between the Himalayas and the Indian Ocean. Very pleasant this morning even without cream and sugar as I ride out the last of my 16 hour intermittent fast.

I love a great Assam, and this is one of them. Very dense and malty; it takes to sugar and milk well. It’s also great to drink straight. If you want to mix it up, I tried a 1/2 Assam, and 1/2 Darjeeling mix, with both Young Mountain teas, and it was fantastic.

Would definitely purchase and drink again!
