5 Tasting Notes
Since discovering quality tea this assam has been the real eye-opener. So to speak.
This has become my favorite tea and I Iike it more the more of it I drink. I brew to Wendell’s instructions and it comes out clear and red. I don’t detect any bitterness or astringency. It’s very smooth and very drinkable. When I finish my 8 oz tin I’m going to order a pound of this.

While this is obviously a high quality tea, I’m not sure it’s my cup of tea, so to speak. The aroma of the leaves is smokey, but not overpowering. I brewed 5 minutes. It came out very clear, slightly dark red. It was smokey, but underneath you could tell there was high quality tea. I’ve never tasted anything like this before, it’s my first lapsang suochong.
