From Camellia Sinensis

From the vast plains of Assam, the Banaspaty garden offers us this tea with uniform and slightly broken leaves. Its liquor is straightforward and full-bodied with aromas typical of tobacco, malt and fruit (prunes). With or without a cloud of milk! A comforting tea for mornings or dessert.

Lexa wanted a Barry’s this morning, so I thought I’d join her in a similar idea using this tea and add a wee dash of soy milk. We avoided soy for many years as vegans and oat milk was the closest we ever found to milk, but I’m really happy with the soy milk this morning. It really comes out similar to tea at Nann’s, which is so awesome.

I enjoyed this cuppa while whipping up vegan blueberry scones for breakfast — they’re in the oven now!

You can get many better teas for the same price. The flavours are atypical of an Assam 2nd flush tea — I don’t even think this was a “real” Assam.

Holy cheese, this is strong! I’m not an expert in Assam teas though, so the strenght is probably normal. I could see myself drinking this in the morning to wake me up, haha.

I had two pots of this tea this morning! I tried it a while ago and now I have ordered more and it’s still as perfect. This is an A+ assam: perfect maltiness and honey notes. I steep it for 10 min to make sure I drain all the flavours from it and it’s not even a tad bitter. Perfect with milk and brown sugar.

Assam Banaspaty from the plains of Assam, Banaspaty garden. India.
The dry leaf smells like malt and cacao beans. They are tiny dark black-brown twisty threads but broken into halves and tiny bits. There are a few blonde ones mixed in too.
I steeped this at 200F for 3 minutes. It created a deep red liquor with scents of malt and hints of orange.
The wet leaves look like chopped reddish brown fall leaves and smell like baked brown bread.
The flavor is good. It has a touch of astringency from a taste like orange zest but just a touch,,, not overbearing at all and would be good for people who add a splash of milk. I love this tea, it really tastes like malt and orange zest. Delicious.

I added some of my homemade almond milk to this and it is heavenly!!!! I see this as a good base for when I make Chai since it has that orange hint in there and blends with milk.
Having a bit of this today with milk. Bold, citrus, malt, good.
Having a cup with milk in it. It needs the milk and can take sugar too though I didn’t put any.

Flavors: Bread, Malt, Orange Zest
