This assam was not one of my “leafy” tasting experiences, but it was nothing particularly bold or exciting either. It tastes smooth, with some astringency afterwards. The flavor was pretty standard, a little sweet. Not bad.

I am trying to drink up the assams, because this subscription is really letting me know that assams aren’t my thing. I do enjoy them with milk…but that really kills any nuances in flavor. I enjoyed this very much with milk, and it was undrinkably strong and astringent for me without.

I suppose part of me originally thought an Assam is an Assam, right? But then the other part of me started thinking about things like terroirs, and reasoned that of course they have to be different. That’s what I am enjoying so much about trying all of these different Assams and Darjeelings. I feel like I am learning about the different estates while I am discovering which teas I like best.

I really liked this Assam. While I liked the one I had yesterday, I think I liked this one a notch more. The mouthfeel was very round and comforting. I could see it becoming a favorite morning tea for me.

I have been intrigued by assams and darjeelings lately. I am enjoying reading these notes.

I love Darjeeling teas (and Assams – but Darjeelings have my heart at the moment). I’m living trying different estates and different years. It’s amazing how much the tea can vary in taste from one year to the next.

*loving not living. :)

Thanks Tiff! I was a little afraid that they were getting repetitive, but if nothing else I figure they’ll help me keep them straight.

I’ve enjoyed them too. Some are new estates for me. I have an Assam I’m pretty loyal to, but I like variety and it always amazes how much of just that teas from Assam can have.

Nicole

You are doing much better than I. I can’t seem to remember which estates I like from one tea to the next! I only ever remember one or two.
