drank Malty Assam by The Tao of Tea
2650 tasting notes

Unfortunately, I’m two for two on underperforming teas from Tao of Tea. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this malty Assam. It’s extremely drinkable; a little sweet, but the “sweet” is about all I’m getting. I wanted whap-you-in-the-face Assam in the bass notes, not tap-you-politely-on-the-shoulder Assam. If you like your breakfast teas on the gentler side, this may be right up your alley.

That’s sad story about Assam tea.

Some days you need a whapping Assam to wake you up. This sounds like a mellow afternoon cup.
