Smells like a high quality, rich honey while brewing.
Taste: wow, quite unique in a good way. Different from the batch of other Assams I got recently. I’m not sure how to describe it, kind of flowery tasting? Maybe faint hints of something that almost tastes like amaretto? It reminds me very slightly of a Darjeeling. Gets kind of fruity tasting when sugared. Interesting tea.

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a young, as a way of relaxing before bed. I ventured out from bagged, mass produced tea when I tried some loose leaf Earl Grey at the old man’s house years back. I’m still not too proud for the occasional bagged stuff, saving my snobbery for hard to find craft beer.

I gravitate towards Chinese black-tea varieties, Japanese greens, unflavored oolongs from wherever, and the occasional “I cant sleep” type of herbal teas. I signed up so I can keep track of the teas I’ve tried, and what I want to keep in my cupboard on the regular.
