drank Assam Malty FBOP by SpecialTeas
115 tasting notes

I did a taste test today with three assam teas from SpecialTeas. This was the close runner up of the three assams. I like a malty caramel flavored assam and this one is a good one. It’s also a nice smooth medium strength flavored assam but has a little more bitterness in the aftertaste, which the first-place winner didn’t. This was even with a 2 minute steep. I added no dairy products so just the sugar for sweetner.

I love loose leaf tea! While I gravitate towards black teas, I’m getting more into oolongs, greens and whites. I’m always looking for great fresh new teas to try. This tends to lead to the problem of ordering more even though I already have way too much.

My collection of tea has kind of gotten out of hand. After taking over several kitchen cupboards, it has spilled into the back hallway now with containers of tea stacked up there. I think I need more hours in the day to drink it all.

I’m also a vegetarian who loves dark chocolate, photography, travel, computers, web programming, technology and cats.
