Assam Black Tea
How amazing is the packaging it’s simple yet effective !
Once opening the cute outer packaging of the tea you are left with the vacuum packaged tea. It’s even vacuumed pack on the tea estate to maintain its taste.
On opening the next pouch you are instantly engulfed with the aromas of the Assam. Which are rich and malty.
For this blend T.E.A uses Assam, Mangaldai – India. Grown 1000 ft above sea level.
Let’s Get Brewing!
Loose leaf tea to me always tastes that little bit different. T.E.A sent me a reusable tea bag to use for my brewing needs.
And they recommend using a heaped tea spoon of loose leaf Assam.
The recommend brew time is 3-7 mins so today I’m going down the middle with 5 minutes.
The brewed liquid is a coppery brown in its colouring which is common colouring for an Assam tea.
Drink how you like it with milk or like I am today black. It’s really up to you!
Let’s Get Sipping !
First sip is just tealicious. The flavour is just spot on and hits the spot thing perfectly getting rid of those morning blues.
It’s quite sweet in its taste so mixed with the earthy malty tones of the rest of the sip it makes a fantastic contrast to each sip.
Each sip also has a mixture of almost caramel like notes mixed with a citrus hint almost like an orangey kick. Which provides depth to each sip. Adding a natural sweetness.
There’s a slight almost sour taste to the tea which is most likely caused by not having milk with this tea but it adds a much needed little kick. I don’t know about you but I’m not much use till I’ve had my first cuppa of the day!
Each sip tastes the same throughout the whole mug which is just how it should be and the whole cuppa doesn’t disappoint.
Happy Sipping 🙂
