drank Malty Assam by The Tao of Tea
2654 tasting notes

With a name like this, I expected to be able to pour this stuff straight on the counter and it would pile up in its very own mug shape. Nope.

That doesn’t mean it’s not a fine morning tea. A good Assam with a little bready sweetness; still drinkable after letting the last bit cool for a while (some Assams get so strong you could remove battery corrosion with them). I didn’t see any need to lighten it up with milk—just fine straight up.

Just opened the tin this morning, so there’s plenty left for tinkering.

Steepster “geezer;” tea barbarian who has no systematic method for storage, preparation, classification, or rating; lover of strong unleaded builders’ tea. Never quite grew up—I cut and glue, play with Legos, design kids’ curriculum, and play with fifth graders every Sunday.
