A very smooth Assam. A bit smoother than I usually expect from an Assam. Assam usually is a hefty tasting tea, robust and just bordering on the edge of becoming bitter, but I didn’t get that from this tea, in fact, it might be a little smoother than I want my Assam teas to be. At least my “breakfast” type Assam teas.

Don’t take that as my saying I didn’t like this, because enjoyed it and it’s a really good Assam, but its not one I’d reach for as the first cup of the day. I like my first cup to be just a wee bit edgier than this one is, but again, that’s not to knock this tea because I really, really enjoyed it. It’s smooth, rich, delicious, malty and just … wonderful. I’d save this one for late morning or early afternoon!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
