Due to last week’s Sunday morning tea fiasco, I am writing this note with one eye on my cup at all times lest Minnie decides to tip it over with her hindquarters again.
This is my first outing with the Assam selection in the Palais des Thes sample set that was under my Christmas tree. It has the lovely melba toast scent I associate with the very best Assams. The scent stays in the cup and won’t come out to play when you drink. Medium body with a little bit of stiffness after it cools, but mostly, it’s kind of a big tease.
As always, my first instinct with an underperformer is “next time with milk.” Might boost the elements that are evidently in hiding.
