drank Queen of Assam by Love Chai
1501 tasting notes

This is freakishly yummy.

First, opening the bag delighted me – huge, long, unbroken tea leaves. Yay! My favorite. I don’t know why, other than maybe it’s fun to watch (and I find, delicious to drink).

Then, I had a sip. And another. And another…. you get the point. I gobbled this up like salted chocolate. (Put that in front of me and I inhale it).

Less malty than the Premium Assam Love Chai sent me, more chocolaty and rich, a touch thicker, sweet on its own but better with a touch of sweetener.

I could easily carry this around with me all over the world, it’s that good.

Bag suggested 3g of tea in 200mL, no temperature suggestion, for 3-5 minutes. I used a “perfect teaspoon” from DAVIDs Tea in 16oz of water, 200F, for 4 minutes.

Price: 3.99 pounds for 40g (approx $5 USD at the time of this review). Worth EVERY penny – I’ve paid way more for far less.

[Note: I was gifted this tea in exchange for an honest review].

Flavors: Chocolate, Honey, Tannin, Thick

200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
