drank Assam by Brodie's
21 tasting notes

The Leaf: They have a nice, strong, fresh aroma typical of good Assam tea. The leaves are cut fairly small, but still give a coarse look with very jagged edges and folds. There are some golden tips visible as well, composing maybe 10% of the total leaves.

The brew: It has a nice deep brownish red liquor, minimal basic aroma, and a bold flavor that lingers. The aroma is very light, but has a slight sweetness to it. The flavor is typical of an Assam, very malty, almost woody, slightly bitter with an aftertaste that is a lesser version of this. The mouthfeel is slightly thick with a definite dryness that lasts a little too long and is too strong.

I drink all of my teas cold.

Boiling 2 min, 30 sec

I’ve been a tea drinker since I was a teenager, and have only gotten more addicted to tea as time goes on. I’m currently at a couple of liters a day.

I love all styles of tea, but as I currently live in Japan I’m checking out many of the teas available here; bancha, kukicha, and houjicha to name a few. I’m also a big fan of Assam tea, and almost all herbal teas including rooibos and mate.

My favorite way to brew tea is using a brew device from Taiwan that is marketed in the US under names like IngenuiTEA, and Perfect Teamaker. The device allows ample room for your leaves and makes cleanup quick and easy. I like the brewer so much I’m actually trying to market it in Japan.
