A is for…Assam Mokalbari
Inspired by Mastress Alita and her sipdown thread challenge to drink a tea starting with each letter of the alphabet throughout April. I pre-picked my teas by organizing my spreadsheet by alphabetical order and choosing (one of) the oldest tea(s) for that letter. This tea is from December 2019 but has a best before date from back in November 2020, so it may not be at its best, thus probably good time to be drinking it down.
It’s very astringent and coppery. Brisk is how I would describe it and brisk, for me at least, is usually a bad thing. I am glad I got to try it but I am even more glad to be saying good bye since this is not for me. Thank you Roswell Strange for the chance to try it!
