A fantastic blend! On days when I don’t have to wake up extremely early, I make a cup of this. I usually (but not always) add just a small amount of milk and sugar, but it also tastes delicious without, which surprised me. I like the strength and heartiness of Assam, but it can sometimes be a bit overpowering on its own, and I can rarely drink it plain. The Ceylon in this blend works really well to smooth out the bite of the Assam, while still keeping the robustness. This tin was a gift, but I would certainly buy it myself—and may do just that when I run out! I’m very pleased.

Hi, there! I’m Marcy. I’ve enjoyed tea ever since I was a kid, but only recently (within the past few years) have I really gotten into high quality, loose-leaf tea. Now, all my friends know me as a lover of all kinds of teas, and I’m always happy to share. I try to make tea for people whenever I can.

When I’m not making and drinking tea, I’m usually writing, hiking, building with Lego, or spending time with my wife and kids.

I rarely feel satisfied with giving something a numerical rating, so most of my reviews are listed as simply either “recommended” or “not recommended.” I’m OK with giving ratings to amazing tea and terrible tea, but everything in between just doesn’t seem right, so I usually stay away, and hope that my written reviews will be illuminating enough.

Recently I’ve become a huge fan of Japanese green teas, though a good oolong or pu’er is always welcome.
