In the northeastern state of Assam in India, along the Brahmaputra River grow the hearty, malty Assam teas. The heavy rainfall and hot, humid day time temperatures in this area create the perfect green house like environment for growth, as well as helping to create the unique taste found only in Assam teas. Their distinct flavor can be enjoyed “as is”.
The Hathikuli Estate has 657 hectares under cultivation and has been in business since 1903. They received their organic certification in 2011. The tea has medium-black leaves that brew into a bright amber cup. The taste has a creamy, malty, well-balanced cup.

Drinking this with a blend of Vanilla Cacao like last time. I do enjoy assam on its own, but sometimes I want my tea to be a little more interesting, and this is the perfect way to blend it.
I took the steeper out a bit earlier this time, and it helped balance out the strength of the two teas. I think I put in less assam than cacao this time also, which made the black tea base taste a little weak. I guess sticking to a 1:1 ratio is the way to go. I have only one more teaspoon of Vanilla Cacao left, so I may just have to consider getting more!
