I’ve mentioned before that I love Cameron Tea, haven’t I? The teas are stunning.
I’ve had the opportunity to try both the Premium grade and the competition grade of each of the teas that Cameron offers and I enjoyed discovering the subtle differences between the two grades. I’ve also enjoyed immensely just indulging in these teas. So good!
On the SororiTea Sisters blog, when I reviewed this tea, I mentioned how Cameron defines Premium versus Competition. You can read more about it here: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/07/26/taiwan-sun-moon-lake-assam-black-tea-premium-grade-from-cameron-tea/
This tea is lighter in body than what I’ve come to know as an Assam. It’s not quite as rich, malty and invigorating, but it still is very flavorful and quite wonderful in its own way. And it’s not nearly as astringent as many Assam teas can be. This, in contrast is sweet and soft and silky to drink.
Molasses, honey and cacao. Delightful! Earthy notes of leather and wood. Smooth and satisfying. A really beautiful tea.
