From Tea Centre

A full-bodied, malty Assam with a definite fruity, sweet note and a fragrance similar to sweet autumn apples. This Mokalbari tea is full of golden tips and produces a rich red liquor. the flavour is very smooth and sweet on its own, but strong enough to take the addition of milk and/or sugar. An excellent morning or afternoon tea.

Not my favourite assam. This morning(-ish) it’s quite cardboardy, which isn’t really something I love, although it’s something common to assams. Some are more cardboardy than others, though. I should let my mom know, because she is my large-quantity tea dealer and I have 100g of this to get through!

I’m having it with milk. There’s a bright, pleasant hint of bitterness, even though I did add quite a bit of milk. And there’s quite a bit of caffeine in this one, which is good, as I really need to wake up and get moving.

I had the hardest time getting to sleep last night, and then slept through my alarm and friends texting me. Whoops! So instead of a last minute walk, we’re going to have a late brunch and then I’m going to do some required shopping on my way home.

Blech, cardboard assam.

Sorry you had a bad sleep last night. My mom resorted to giving me a sleeping pill last night since three hours to fall asleep is unacceptable.

OMGsrsly

This is better when I remember to steep it at 2 minutes. :D

Aww, moms. I take melatonin often but sometimes it doesn’t help as much as I hope.

Fjellrev

Aww yeah, melatonin does nothing for me, and neither does 5-HTP. Had another nearly sleepless night. Trying hard not to resort to drugs haha.

OMGsrsly

It’s hard sometimes! Do you use flux? It tints your computer screen warm instead of blue, so it has less of an affect on your brain. Sadly I don’t think it works on phones, but it’s something to consider. I also have “white light” bulbs on timers in my house, and the lamps I turn on in the evening are all the yellow-ish ones.

Fjellrev

Never heard of Flux before! I’ll have to look into that, thanks. That’s a smart idea regarding the lighting. I think my main problem is me though haha.

I have sleep troubles sometimes too. My methods tend to flit between chamomile tea, melatonin, and magnelevures (but there are other magnesium brands out there you can try as well)

Ohhhh, that’s what my vitamin collection is missing again. Magnesium. I’ll have to remember to pick some more up.

Indigobloom

Hey maybe that will solve allll the sleep woes :D
