UGH! I brewed this in the worst possible way. First I used boiled water, but left the top open on my teapot to compensate. Then on the second steep I got distracted and brewed over my 3.5 minuet mark by a good bit. Both steepings where combined in the mug.

That being said, this came out good. The assam definitely helps soften the persnickety ceylon, which I could taste coming through crisp and a little bitter. The assam brings a starchy and malty sweetness to the tea, while the ceylon has a crisp, metallic, and vague citrus notes. Nothing to write home about, but it is a good teabag replacement tea. At least now I know what it tastes like when I use it in blends; and that it is overstepping friendly.

I have been drinking and makeing tea for me and my mom for most of my life and have been starting to get into loose teas.

I like fruity, spicy, strong teas, Chai’s, Black, and Rooibos. I have recently been trying and getting into Oolongs…

Just love it and might keep as a staple
Really liked it, and makes a above average cup
Is good, but might not have a lot of complexity or wow factor. Is pretty average
It’s ok, but not great. Might need added ingredients or tweaking, and is below average.
Would only if nothing else was available. Would not recommend to someone.
Below 50
Bad tea is bad
