5 being the best - 1 being the worst
Dry Leaf Appearance: It looked of tiny beads of dried, dark chocolate, dirt. In fact it looked just like the Instant Coffee that my Grandpa Tony used to drink. Ha Ha This is what it reminded me of.
Wet Leaf Appearance: Mud! When the piping water went in it looked just like a mud pie I used to make as a child. Rich Brown, Mushy (for lack of a better word) - but with Aroma's that could knock you off your socks.
Liquor Color: A Deep Rich Mahogany Brown - couldn't see to the bottom of the Cup. Pure Brown Beauty!
Aroma: The moment the water hit cup, I can only describe it with these words: Rich, Bold, Strong, Dominance and Nose Candy.
Taste: Malty Tongue Coating Creamy Goodness. Full-Bodied, Silky, and a very pleasing lingering flavors! I love my Tea strong.... Assam Tea just might be a new addiction of mine - was a treat for me!
Comments: I think Assam should be deemed a Tea for Hercules. Beautiful, Bold and Intense. A Great choice for a lover of Black Tea and and even better choice for someone looking to add a "jump start" to their day - if this Tea doesn't awake your senses - I suggest researching the quote you want on your Tomb Stone!
The lonely cup awaits, as the Water takes its sweet time to boil
In goes the Water
and now we wait....complete torture!
