drank Invigorate Assam Black by Treleela
429 tasting notes

I found this tea at T.J. Maxx (1/2 price) to take on vacation next month. It has a unique steeping system built in to the tea bag. The bag is very large and has wings that pull out on the sides of the bag that fit over the sides of the rim on your cup. It actually works very well. The tea is typical assam. Its robust, brisk and malty and a good wake up tea. However, it just doesn’t match Mountain Malt. It doesn’t have that bready notes that I find in very good assams. The tin suggested a steep of 4-5 minutes, I used the latter. It did have some astringency so next time I use 4 minutes. Its still a very nice tea just not up to the fanatical standards I use for judging assam teas.

I have been gone from steepster for the last 4 years traveling and getting to know my wife of 45 years better. Now we have retired to North Florida from Maine. We now eat organic and limit our tea selections to proven organic tea companies.
