Savoy tea is in business and thriving, but the storefront we visited yesterday is preparing to relocate, so what we found there yesterday was a little hodge-podgey. (Mind you, this did not keep me from restocking several favorites.) This was the only one of its kind on the sample rack; I saw “Assam” and grabbed without examining it closely.

At any rate, it is one of the least Assam-y Assams I’ve sampled in the recent past…has a fresh floral smell (lilacs from across the yard, not lilacs under your nose) and that carries over to the flavor. It’s more oolong-y than Assam-y and needs a lighter touch than I gave the first cup…is a little bitter now that I’m toward the bottom. Next time I’ll back off the steep time to 3 minutes instead of the sloppy 4 I gave it.

Last word; it’s a tea party-pinky up Assam. Not for sleepy mornings.

I would love to hear how you like it with new steeping parameters! Are they relocating to a place where you can still easily access them?

Sounded like they were looking for a nearby option. They have another storefront in Fayetteville (AR) about 30 minutes further south—we just generally have no need to venture that far.
