Today is exceptionally damp and chilly, a real seashore sort of morning. Perfect for finally breaking open this bold Assam! Even at three and a half minutes this is quite strong and enough to shake the sleep from me. The initial flavor is old amber, woody with carob and a sharp port call of a finish. It has a refreshing aroma of peat moss and old books. I don’t need yancha every day, so I’ll see how many misty mornings I can make this treasure last.

I love Japanese teas, whites, pu’erh, and tisanes. I don’t out right dislike any kind of tea; everything gets a fair chance as a gift from the Earth.
Reviewing new teas always makes me a happy frog. Contact me at [email protected] or comment on my blog below.
